Trumpet vine Flava


How do you keep it under control?

I don’t its invasive. Constantly pulling new growth everywhere! Let the lawnmower take care of it in the lawn? Short weeds!

I planted one many years ago and spend many more years trying to grub it out.

Pretty though and brings tons of hummingbirds!


I managed to save myself a bunch of headaches on these. I plated one, the yellow with red throat (Athens) in an area it didn’t like. I actually have looked back at pictures of it almost yearly wondering if I should try again and get another.

Maybe not (I don’t have even 1/5th of the space yours is taking up MrsG.
