Virginia Creeper vs Trumpet Vine

Parthenocissus quinquefolia

Campsis radicans


Virginia Creeper
Trumpet Vine

Virginia Creeper is a fast-growing, climbing vine. Its root-like tendrils attach themselves to any non-smooth surface, even brick, but will also grow as a ground cover.

Virginia Creeper makes a beautiful ornamental plant for your garden; its attractive foliage turns from green to deep red in the fall. Birds will love its red berries.

Trumpet Vine is a dense, multi-stemmed climbing vine with orange to red trumpet-shaped flowers. They bloom throughout the summer, adding a pop of colour to your landscape. Their fast growth rate and climbing abilities make it well suited for trellises, arbors, walls, and fences. It is recommended that structures are strong enough to bear the weight of the plant as it grows.

Regular pruning is recommended as blooms occur on new growth and it helps control the spreading nature of the plant. Care should be taken when planting the Trumpet Vine, especially in warmer climates as it can spread quickly. It is prone to suckering and will self-seed. Plant the right tree in the right place.
