Vigorous growing vine. It's still dormant right now.

I am looking for heat tolerant plants since I'm starting out from scratch (again).

So make me an offer.

Here is a link that might be useful:

wow trumpet vine! the plant? i was given seeds in a swap but the never sprouted. i'm really looking for the plant. you know a good few chuncks of rooted peices. i know people like to trade plants for plants. i don't have any heat tolerant plants growing. but i have some zinnia seeds. they are very drought tolerant, and they grow very fast! by may they will be 3 ft tall and great cut flowers. and when you cut them they produce two more flowers at the cut point. they cannot survive with "wet feet" Also i have marigold seeds that grow like crazy in the heat. oh, and i have some daturas that bloom in the evening that have huge white trumpet shaped blossoms, they actually originated in the desert! i hope these would be worth some of your trumpet vine. please let me know thanks!

Yup. Lots of the plant. It's dormant right now so it'll be bare root. It may take 2 years to show signs of growth (but not always). Then it can go nuts, depending on the amount of sun and water. A neighbor never waters hers (central Az) and it stays small and controlled. Mine? well I loose a 100' section of my fence every summer with lots of runners and it's pretty wild. The vine has to be tolerant of a lot of conditions since my start came from the Pacific Northwest.

It's an excellent hummingbird draw. I like it because it's a high nectar/low pollen plant and doesn't cause hayfever.

Zinnas and marigolds are perfect for cover and weed suppressors. Love 'em. I have always admired daturas but haven't tried them - and I'd LOVE to. That's a big WOW. I've got a white garden started near my house which should be perfect... I'm VERY happy.

EMAIL ME. Let's get started! I'll throw in anything else I may have left over. Ya' never know what will grow sometimes.
