ℹ An absolute show-stopper, Indian Summer produces masses of large, stunning 3-inch, trumpet-shaped, pumpkin orange flowers with apricot overtones and a beautiful scarlet throat! This award-winning and early prolific bloomer has lush green, glossy, small pinnate serrated foliage on a very compact form with strong woody stems that will quickly climb a trellis, fence or arbor to create a spectacular display and is also suitable for patio containers! Appearing throughout the summer and early fall, these magnificent tubular blooms are borne in large, often pendant clusters at the ends of the branches and provide a long-lasting and delightful floral show. Hummingbirds love them and never fail visiting them. The blooms are followed by attractive bean-like seedpods. Indian Summer is a charming hybrid between Campsis radicans (American Trumpet Vine) and Campsisgrandiflora (Chinese Trumpet Vine). It is a more compact and manageable Trumpet than other species. This vine blooms on new growth and should be pruned in late winter or early spring. Cut back branches to within three to four buds. This will encourage a more compact growth and promote the formation of flower buds in the shortened shoots. Overcrowded, diseased or damaged shoots can be removed at the same time.
