Is Crimson Trumpet Vine truly red?
The one called "Flamenco" or "Crimson" is supposed to be a deep red with orange center. The photos I've seen on the internet show flowers that look just as orange as the regular Campsis radicans, or some photos with very, very blue-looking foliage have true-red flowers. (I think they were doctored)
I really want a vigorous, true-red perennial vine, and was hoping this could be it. Does anyone here grow this, and can you help me with some information?
Also, if anyone has another suitable vine in mind, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!
