My husband pruned all the leaves off of our trumpet vine. All that remains are the base stems. Is there any hope that the plant will survive? It is at least 10 or 15 years old.
Trumpet vine, Campsis radicans, is a vigorous grower with extensive roots. I believe it will survive and you'll see leaves before the end of the growing season. It may, however, pop up in other locations from the root system. These will need to be promptly removed to limit growth to its original location.
