Russian Almond vs Trumpet Vine

Prunus tenella

Campsis radicans

Russian Almond
Trumpet Vine

Russian Almond is a low maintenance, short, slightly suckering shrub. It is covered with attractive, bright pink flowers in early spring before its foliage emerges.

This hardy species forms dense thickets attracts wildlife. Russian Almond prefers full sun and well-drained soils, but can tolerate moist soils.

The nuts it produces are quite attractive but very small. They are bitter and possibly toxic in large quantities.

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.
