Item added to cart!

Madame Galen Trumpet Creeper is a fast-growing climbing vine with pinnate glossy dark green leaves that are a duller green underneath and turn yellow in fall.  It sports trumpet-shaped flowers that open red-orange and mature to striking red bloom on new growth, attracting bees and butterflies in summer.  Blooms best in full sun and well-drained soil.  An excellent choice for trellises or pergolas.  Very aggressive spreader and drought tolerant.
