The Campsis grandiflora , also known Chinese trumpet vine, is a beautiful deciduous Chinese species spectacular summer flowering. This deciduous climbing plant rises several meters above the ground using its vigorous vines with some aerial roots that allow it to cling to a wall, like ivy. Flowering lasts at least 3 months, in the form of large hanging panicles composed of broad trumpets flared with a very bright orange-red, evolving towards a more apricot tone. This plant is not the most resistant to the cold, but it adapts to any ordinary soil and shows a very fast growth. With its heavy flowering, the plant will have to be trellised and protected from the wind which destroys flowers and leaves.
Campsis grandiflora is used everywhere, to cover a wall sheltered from cold winds, an unsightly building, a sunny facade, a fence or an old wall. This very tolerant plant supports short frosts down to -15 ° C, in well-drained soil and in a sheltered situation. You can associate it for example with other original climbers like Akebia quinata, Actinidia kolomikta, Holboellia latifolia to create a colorful scene.
