Indian Summer Trumpet Creeper is a fast-growing climbing vine with pinnate dark green leaves that are a duller green underneath and turn yellow in fall.  It sports yellow-orange trumpet-shaped flowers with red throats that 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.
