1. Gorgeous photo!

Does it attract hummingbirds?

3. So I've been told!

This grows in my back lot and I haven't seen any, yet.

2. Sooo lovely!

I dig the colors and the way they vary, from the bud to open flower.

Happy Fourth to you and your gorgeous Trumpet flowers!

4. The thing about trumpet vines:

You can pull 'em out by the roots...and they will bloom next year.

You can douse them with gasoline and scorch the earth around them...and they will bloom next year.

You could nuke 'em with the plasma of a thousand suns...and they will bloom next year.

They are beautiful, but they take over EVERYTHING!

5. It's a constant battle, that's for sure

I found that using 'Brush Kill' helps - a bit. It is the one plant I wish WASN'T on the property. Well, that and the Poison Ivy.

10. Beautiful, thanks for sharing!

A former neighbor had one and the Hummingbirds wouldn't leave it alone.
