CAMPSIS

(D = deciduous leaf losing)

These are self-clinging climbers with small aerial roots like the ivy, and will grow best by a warm sunny wall where they may climb to 15 to 20 ft. in time. They flower in late summer and early autumn. If the lateral growths are pruned in autumn to two or three buds, not only will the plant be kept within its limits but flowering will be encouraged.
