Trumpet Plant Over Winter

I live in WV and have a Trumpet plant. What should I do to winter it? Do I cut to the ground like my butterfly bush or just leave it?

You don't really need to do anything for it. Trumpet vines are very hardy and withstand even weather that is colder than yours just fine.

Do not trim it back. It will continue to grow on the vines it grew this past summer. If you need to cut it back due to it getting too large, you can do so in the spring.

If the vine freezes back, will it come back or grow from dropped seeds?

I have an arbor/trellis around my front door and would like a fast growing climbing vine. This is also near my leach field, so I have to be cautious of not having anything that will effect that. I was thinking Trumpet vine. . . reading pros and cons to it. Thoughts?

How do I get rid of some pesky trumpet vines? I uprooted all of them and little ones keep coming back again. My neighbor’s (under the wooden fence) have trumpet vines. Is this an impossible situation?

Leaves Eaten Away

I was wondering what is going on with my flowers. Every year this happens. I don’t see any kind of bug or worm on them. But my trumpet vine is being eaten away—especially the tiny new leaves. My marigold leaves are also disappearing. And my four-o-clocks were not very high when the leaves were disappearing. I am about to give up on flowers. I started spraying with soap and water. Will this help? Don’t like using poisons.

Why Won’t My Trumpet Vine Flower?

I am growing an orange trumpet vine on an arbor in my backyard. This is my third season with it and still no flowers. It comes back every year and grows and grows but no blooms. Needless to say I am very disappointed as I wanted it especially for the hummingbirds!

It sounds like it has too much nitrogen, which is common for these fast growing vines, especially of they are near a lawn that gets fertilized (lawn fertilizer is high in nitrogen). Try root pruning with a shovel. Drive a shovel into the ground in a circle around the plant about 3-4 feet away from the plant. This will prune the roots and it won't be able to take in as much nitrogen, which will allow it to bloom.

If it is planted near a lawn, in the future, don't fertilize near the plant if possible.
