The Q&A Archives: Trumpet Creeper

Question: I planted this bush last year and trimmed slightly the beginning of growth in spring this year, but have yet to have any of the beautiful flowers bloom! There are no signs of blossoms, What can I do to get this bush to bloom??

Answer: In my experience, trumpet creeper needs lots of sunshine and heat to bloom. While your plant may seem slow to grow and bloom, I think it will catch up as soon as the weather consistently remains warm - then you'll want to stand back because trumpet creeper can grow 6-10 inches a day. Enjoy!
