RE: summer snowfall trumpet vine

Hey there Jimsgirl,
I think you haven't had any responses because there is no tame campsis variety right now.
"even though i know it needs control..." Keep in mind there really is no way to successfully control it for the average gardener, it will escape. To keep it in a pot will often result in dissappointment at no flowers, then you'll be tempted to put it in the ground and it will behave like a campsis does and take over. I know how beautiful they are, so do most of us on here but please keep in mind your neighbors because it will wind up in their gardens as well.
I would send you a registered letter requesting you remove it if you were my neighbor. Then hit you with the bills later when I had to remove it from my property. That's how bad they are. I'm not a mean or nasty person, but I did it to my neighbors in NYC when I was a kid, and they are still trying to erradicate it over 30 years later.
