Product Description

Cross Vine
 
Cross Vine, also known as the Bignonia capreolata L., is easy to grow, as it is a hardy plant. It's a vining plant that is loaded with beautiful green leaves and bright-colored flowers. The flowers are trumpet-shaped and is an evergreen native to the United States. It has been known to grow wild in many southeastern states and its vines can climb trees up to 30 feet high if left uncultivated. The Bignonia capreolata L. is a wonderful addition to any garden and will add living beauty to your home. It can climb walls and vertical structures so it's perfect for adding a little something extra to porches, fences, and trellises. It is also a great alternative to the trumpet vine, as it is not as invasive. The Cross Vine will attract hummingbirds and other varieties of small birds, as they are attracted to the nutrient-rich nectar of the trumpet-shaped blooms. The blooms can range form a bright orange and red color and the foliage is typically Chartreuse/Gold in color. Cross Vines are very fragrant, low maintenance and are ideal for container gardening. The Cross Vine is quite easy to grow from seed and you can even collect the seeds from the pods that grow once the blossoms have faded. To grow, all you need to do is plant the seeds in the ground in the fall or spring. You can also grow them from a root cutting. The Cross Vine is drought tolerant and will grow in many different types of soil. It is best to prune them in the winter in order to control its growth, as it is a very fast-growing plant.
