Trumpet Vine Still Dormant?
I have a marital problem. It's called a Trumpet Vine. LOL! I absolutely love the large, old trumpet vine growing on a trellis, next to the back of our house. I love the beautiful, orange flowers that, when the vines reach out from the trellis in the fall, grow right in front of my window. My husband, on the other hand, hates it! Every fall, he trims it to within an inch of its life, hoping all the while that he'll kill it by doing so. So far, (we've lived here 3 years, now) he has not succeeded and the vine happily grows again in the spring. However, so far this year, it hasn't started to grow back and I am worried. Has my husband finally succeeded in killing this normally impossible-to-kill vine, just by trimming it? Or is it just taking its time this year?
