Growing and Maintenance Tips:


Campsis grows best in a moist to average soil, in full sun to partial shade. Flowers best in full sun locations, an excellent foliage plant in full shade. Flowers are produced on new wood, so plant can be pruned in spring to the desired size. Mature plants have heavy, woody stems, so a strong structure is necessary.
