C. x tagliabuana – This cross between the 2 species originated in Italy in the 1850’s.Often more shrubby in growth, it includes several attractive cultivars.

‘Madame Galen’ – this vigorous climber reaches 30′ feet high. It produces pinnate, dark green leaves, to 12″ long, composed of 7-11 ovate leaflets. From late summer to autumn it bears terminal panicles of 6-12 trumpet shaped, salmon-red flowers.

Grow in any moderately fertile, moist but well drained soil, they tolerate poor and restriction to the roots. Where marginally hardy, trumpet creepers are best grown against a warm wall in full sun. Elsewhere, they will tolerate a wide range of exposures. Provide a sturdy, large support, many Campsis species can pull down an inadequate support or overwhelm a small tree. Prune in late winter or early spring.
