Crossvine (Bignonia capreolata)

11.95

An evergreen vine with glossy leaves and showy, two-tone, trumpet flowers of orange and red, crossvine is a good choice for a pergola or heavy trellis.  The plant reaches 50 feet long, often seen growing high in a tree. Foliage remains evergreen in the South, but turns reddish-purple in fall with subsequent leaf drop in the colder winter areas of its range. Flowers are followed by 7” long greenish, pod-like seed capsules.  Found in the wild on forested floodplains and uplands, hammocks, fencerows and limestone escarpments. Tolerates brief flooding.
