The Hot Lips® Trumpet Vine is a vigorous grower and bloomer. Also known as Campsis x tagliabuana 'Rutcam,' this vining plant has lovely red flowers. The extended, trumpet-shaped flowers have scalloped ends that flare open. The flowers bloom in clusters, creating a dense curtain of blooms. Flowers bloom from late spring until fall weather turns chilly. 

Trumpet Vine is a North American native that is incredibly easy to maintain. It pushes out reaching vines, so landscape plants need a trellis or arbor to climb. Plant the Hot Lips® Trumpet Vine along a fence or shed, and the stems will hide the structure. Include this plant in a container, and the stems will cascade and latch onto a nearby building or other structure within reach. Sweltering summer weather is not an issue for this vining beauty. Pollinators, especially hummingbirds and butterflies, are also enthralled by the stunning flowers.

Hot Lips® Trumpet Vine Care

For best results, place this Trumpet Vine in full sun. The Hot Lips® Trumpet Vine is drought tolerant, but blooms best with water during an extended dry period, especially when grown in a container. This plant can live in low-quality soil, but for best results, give it rich, moist, and well-drained soil. Fertilizer is unnecessary because this plant is not a heavy feeder, but a slow-release fertilizer in the spring will start the growing season strong.

Prune in spring as the plant wakes up from dormancy to remove damaged growth. Deadhead the plant to keep it looking nice and encourage even more flowers. Shape the plant in the fall after the flowers fade to remove woody stems and overgrowth.

Hot Lips® Trumpet Vine Spacing

The Hot Lips® Trumpet Vine can reach 40 feet long and 10 feet wide. Space plants 10 feet apart so the vines have room to grow. Grow one plant in an 18-inch-wide container.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
