The Trumpet Creeper 'is a climbing plantThe Trumpet Creepers 'Flava' and 'Madame Galan' are striking climbers. Their stems and trumpet-shaped flowers can decorate a wall or pergola from June-September. The stems produce plenty of self-cling aerial roots to attach themselves while climbing. However, we still recommend to help the Trumpet Creeper to climb by placing it close to a wall, fence or a pergola facing south. Due to its strong growth, this plant is best used as a solitary plant.

Protect the base of this plant against severe frost with a layer of fallen leaves. Even though some of its stems will die, it will always continue growing from its roots. Give it garden compost and manure early in the spring. Prune its strong 'skeleton' of older stems in late March or early April.
