Campsis radicans
Campsis radicans, is a species of flowering plant of the family Bignoniaceae, native to the eastern United States and naturalized in parts of the western United States as well as in Ontario, parts of Europe, and scattered locations in Latin America. Wikipedia
Scientific name: Campsis radicans
Higher classification: Campsis

Vigorous, sprawling trumpet vine (Campsis radicans) spreads through underground runners and self-seeds freely. Also called trumpet creeper, trumpet vine is hardy in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 4 through 9. It grows 25 to 40 feet tall and 5 to 10 feet wide, bearing orange or scarlet, trumpet-shaped summer flowers. Trumpet vine seed germination rates improve after a period of chilling to break their dormancy, and seeds germinate when temperatures rise. Seed can be sown in potting soil and chilled in a refrigerator or stored in a plastic bag in a refrigerator for sowing outdoors in spring.
Leave in the Cold1
Fill a plant container with potting soil to 1 inch below the rim. Push three or four seeds gently below the surface of the soil, evenly spaced in the container, to the same depth as the width of the seeds. Water the container and leave it to drain.
Put the container with sown trumpet vine seeds inside a clear plastic bag, and wrap the bag loosely around the container. Place the container in a refrigerator, and leave it for two months.
Take the container out of the refrigerator, and remove the plastic bag. Place the container on a sunny windowsill, or in a greenhouse or other bright spot where the temperature is no lower than 50 degrees Fahrenheit at night.
Check the container every three or four days for signs of growing trumpet vine seedlings. Apply water regularly so that the potting soil is constantly moist but not sodden.
Step Outside1
Place trumpet vine seeds in a plastic bag and seal it. Store the bag in a refrigerator for two months.
Dig over a 1 foot square area for growing trumpet vine in spring, after all danger of frost has passed. Break up the ground with a garden fork to a depth of 1 foot and remove any weeds and their roots. Level the surface of the soil with a rake.
Push three or four trumpet vine seeds beneath the soil surface, spaced three or four inches apart, until covered by their own depth in soil. Water the ground until the soil is moist but not sodden.
Check the site every one or two weeks, removing any weeds that appear, and watering the ground if the surface dries out.
