The Q&A Archives: Trumpet Creepers

Question: This is the first year i've seen seed pods. What do they do?

Answer: The pods hang on the plant while the seeds mature. Eventually they dry and turn papery, split open and the seeds escape. You may then find a plethora of seedlings popping up which will need to be weeded out next summer. For this reason many gardeners collect the pods before they open.
