Container trumpet vine...

cadillactasteApril 29, 2014

I collected an older trumpet vine. I hope to have success with it in a container.

I also am getting into bonsai...and I know ones who have untraditional bonsai with this vine. The thing is...I don't believe I wish to chop it for a bonsai tree. I like the gnarly look of it.

Since potted...I have noticed the live green vein more noticeable on the main trunk. (Which is a good thing). I've also added more soil to the pot and put a stake in the pot to help secure it when the wind blows.

Here it is staked and wired to not blow in the the base of the vine...sadly you can't see it where I have it up at the top of our waterfall.

We must not be to far apart. Found your post when looking for info on containering a trumpet vine. How did yours do this 2014 season? Did you get blooms? I garden for hummingbirds and have been long avoiding getting a trumpet vine because of associated perils. But taking the plunge this coming season. Getting one in a 5 g pot already of blooming size.
