Special Attributes

If you want hummingbirds to flock to your garden the Madame Galen Trumpet Vine is a plant that should be on your list. Similar in growth habit to Wisteria, it is a fast-growing vine that produces abundant clusters of deep-orange to salmon-red trumpet-shaped flowers  that are irresistible to hummingbirds. The 3-inch long flowers are borne in clusters at the tips of the stems starting in early to mid-summer and continuing until late summer or early fall. What's really neat is watching how the hummingbirds will disappear inside the flower when feeding.

Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing vigorously to 20 feet in height in a single season, the Madame Galen Trumpet Vine is not a plant for the mailbox. It requires a larger structure that can support the length of the vine such as an arbor, pergola, tall pole, fence or deck rails, or even a a tall tree. In our gardens, we have it growing up a 30 foot tall telephone pole. It reached the top in two years and then developed a nice, umbrella-shaped canopy. 

Cultural Preferences

Madame Galen Trumpet Vine is exceptionally easy to grow in a wide range of well-drained soils in full sun to part shade, Flowering will be heavier with more sun. After quickly establishing itself, it is exceptionally drought and heat tolerant and has few if any insect or disease problems. It will drop seeds so you'll want to pull or spray any seedlings that pop up where you don't want them. We haven't seen a big problem with seedlings in our gardens. Some years we might have to remove maybe 10 seedlings...not nearly as many as oak, poplar, sweet gum and pine seedlings. This species of Campsis is more restrained and flowers much longer than the species.
