Trumpet Creeper’s Method of Attachment


htmoze added on August 1, 2017 | Answered

I have planted several trumpet creepers against a metal mobile home. They are rapidly growing now, but have no "suction cups" to use for securing against the vertical surface. I remember trumpet vines as having a sort of very 'tight' appendages which attach to the substrate surface and hold the vine in place to affect its adhesion to the vertical surface. Why are there none visible on my newly planted vines?

Your Trumpet Vine needs a trellis or wire to attach to for climbing.
