Trumpet Vine - Campsis radicans
The Campsis radicans, known by a variety of names, is most commonly called the Trumpet Vine. The flowering plant was initially found in eastern regions of the United States, but today is cultivated in western areas of the U.S., as far north as Ontario, and parts of Europe and Central and South America.
The deciduous vine can reach lengths approaching 33 feet or more, with small, elliptical leaves. The leaves that darken from an emerald tint into a deep, forest green, rarely grow to more than a few centimeters. The Trumpet Vine's defining characteristic is its bright orange or red flower, trumpet-shaped with a yellow-lined interior, that appears at the tail end of the warm season. The dazzling color of the flower was eye-catching even to the early settlers of the North American continent, with colonists from Virginia transplanting the vine back to England as far back as the 1600s.
Naturally growing in wooded settings and along riverbanks, the Trumpet Vine is now a popular addition in gardening and bird-watching. The colorful bell of the flower attracts the attention of hummingbirds, while a dense, thick covering of the vines is a popular nesting site for birds of all kinds. The vine is hardy too, ravenously so, and can quickly overtake its surroundings, not limited to other vegetation. Trumpet Vines have been known to devour fences, poles, and whole trees when left to their own devices. Fortunately, the pruning, necessary to keep the vine controlled, is the only maintenance the beautiful plant requires.
Trumpet Vines prefer warmer climates but will survive in northern areas, though the flowers in those regions tend towards the smaller side. After the flowering season, the Trumpet Vine produces seed pods that harden and split, releasing hundreds of tiny seeds. Additionally, when the weather warms, the vine's tendrils will begin to creep, latching on to surrounding surfaces. As long the growth of these vines is checked, they are an incredible addition to any garden or landscape.
Wisteria Plant-Wisteria Frutescens
Wisteria is a beautiful climbing vine plant, and it can be trained to work as a climbing vine or as a tree. The vine will either grow clockwise or counterclockwise around a supporting structure. Wisteria is a native plant of Japan, China, and Korea, however, is an introduced species that you find in the Eastern United States. Wisteria is most hardy in zones five through nine. The Wisteria plant needs full sun; if you have dark areas, then the plant will not flower as much and become spindly. The soil needs to be slightly acidic, moist, but yet well-drained. If left with nothing to climb upwards on it can grow into a mound, with cultivation you can teach the Wisteria to grow into a moderate-sized tree with beautiful purple, purple white, pink, or white flowering vines. Flowering for the American species is mid to late summer. Wisteria, once it matures, is a massive plant, so a supporting structure for this is required. The blooming process of Wisteria can take three to five years, but with proper care can accelerate its growth. Wisteria makes a beautiful accent to any area that has a lattice, a climbing structure such as a fence, and even planting it then training it to drape over a rock wall is a beautiful showpiece for an area. As long as the Wisteria is pruned and cut back during the growing season, it can be kept a manageable plant. The seed pods for the North American variety is smooth while the Asian counterpart has fuzzy seed pods; this is a great way to tell the difference in the species. The Asian variety grows very aggressively as the North American variety grows a little less aggressive. You can grow Wisteria from seed; however most buyers get an already started plant.
