A collector's plant and possibly the most beautiful trumpet vine of all! A shrubby rambler, it is the only trumpet vine with hardly any adhesive roots, which makes a support system essential. It grows bushy, at times also slightly twining, up to 8m high on a trellis. Originating from China, it was introduced to Europe around 1800 and became a hybrid partner of 'Madame Galen' as well as 'Indian Summer.' Campsis grandiflora is impressive with its very large and loosely arranged flowers. It is also suitable as a potted plant. In the uplands where strong frosts occur, other Campsis hybrids are recommended. Refer to the trumpet vine general information for guidance on location, pruning, suitable cable systems, etc..
