First Editions Atomic Red Trumpet Vine (Campsis radicans ‘Stromboli’)
First Editions Atomic Red Trumpet Vine
If you’re in the mood to create a big visual feature in your landscape…there is nothing showier (or quicker) than First Editions® Atomic Red™ Trumpet Vine (Campsis radicans ‘Stromboli’).
Incredible clusters of dark red flower buds develop all across the top surface of the vine. These inch-long buds simply “pop” against the dark green compound foliage.
The blooms lengthen and open up to display an unforgettable red-orange hue. As the blooms age, they’ll mellow to an outstanding ruby-red.
The flowers feature long throats, which make it easy for hummingbirds to grab nutritious nectar. Don’t be surprised to see these jewel-toned avian friends visit your vine several times a day.
The flower power starts in mid-summer and continues through fall. Trust us…Atomic Red Trumpet Vine is not for the timid.
Even the sculptural trunk is uniquely interesting. The thick roots grow woody and gnarled below the explosion of delicate foliage.
Like Wisteria, this vigorous vine needs a strong support system. The plant climbs by attaching aerial rootlets to stone, cement, brick and wood.
For a fabulous, long-term display…order Atomic Red Trumpet Vine from our plant experts today.

Plant your Trumpet Vine in full sun, with at least six hours of sun a day. You’ll get the most blossoms with sunshine.
Well-drained soil is also important. Elevate the planting site if your soil has poor drainage.
The red-orange flowers are borne on new growth, so prune in late winter. Control for size at that time.
We recommend that you give them a medium amount of water on a regular basis. While they are hardy, keeping them hydrated will protect your investment in dry weather.
