Distictis buccinatoria (Red Trumpet Vine) - This is a fast growing evergreen vine reaching 30 feet tall. It has green somewhat-leathery 4 inch long leaves with tendrils that form disks so it can climb fences and structures. The showy orange red trumpet flowers with yellowish throats are abundant throughout the warm months. Plant in full sun to part shade and water occasionally in the summer. It is hardy and evergreen to about 25 degrees F. If it is well established, it should regenerate from the roots if it freezes down to the ground - our plants regenerated completely after the tops froze in 1990 freeze when temperatures dipped to 18 F. This plant native to Mexico and cultivated worldwide has long been known as Bignonia cherere, later as Phaedranthus buccinatorius and most recently as Distictis buccinatoria. The current name, according to The Plant List, the collaborative authoritative listing by Kew Botanic Garden and Missouri Botanic Garden, is Amphilophium buccinatorium. We will continue to list this plant as Distictis buccinatoria until such time as this name change has wider acceptance.  This description is based on our research and observations of this plant as it grows in containers at our nursery, in our own garden and in other gardens. We also appreciate receiving feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or have additional cultural tips that would aid others growing Distictis buccinatoria .
