Orange Trumpet Flower Vine

This pretty little trumpet flower is blooming in Houston gardens now. It is said to attract hummingbirds, and I am hoping to see one or two. This particular vine is a "volunteer." The best way to propogate these vines is to look at the base of the mother vine and see if there are any little shoots coming up along the side. Dig around the roots carefully, taking as much soil as possible. Transplant into a pre-dug hole, in a suitable spot, usually along a fence or other supporting structure, with a little root stimulation hormone and water well, for the best chance of a successful transplantation.
