This plant wants no babying — no extra fertilizer, no water, no love at all. “I once heard the plantsman Michael Dirr say, ‘If you can’t grow Campsis, you should go and sell shoes,’” Staddon says. Leave this climber to its own devices near a trellis or fence and it will reward you with vigorous growth and a bounty of trumpet-shaped red blooms. (One area’s vigorous vine is another area’s invasive nightmare. Be sure to check with your local extension office before growing trumpet vine.)
