I’d like to plant a couple of trumpet vines to feed hummingbirds, and I’m wondering about other potential uses and also recommendations about location and management. I’m in the south in its native range. I’ve heard it can be very prolific so I’d love to hear if anyone has found it useful to have around.
I planted a few vines on the back fenceline of my property. they do spread but i mow both sides of fence. they covered fence nicely back there where severe flooding prevents me from growing anything I want. It makes a very dense wall on fence and critters love them. I would contain them around a house of gardens for sure.
Story like this gets better after being told a few times. Or maybe it's just a tiny ad:
