Orange Trumpet Vine (Pyrostegia venusta) grows well in the warm to temperate climates.  Known for its gorgeous orange flowers that bloom in late autumn through to winter, the Orange Trumpet Vine is a low maintenance, evergreen plant to choose for climbing up fences or walls.


How to grow Orange Trumpet Vine in a garden

  1. Choose a position in full sun or part shade with well drained soil.
  2. Enrich the soil with Yates Thrive Natural Blood & Bone with Seaweed. If the soil is clay based, add gypsum and fork in well. 
  3. Dig the planting hole twice as wide and to the same depth as the root-ball. Remove the plant from the container and gently tease the roots.
  4. Position in hole and backfill, gently firming down. Form a raised doughnut shaped ring around the plant, creating a well so that water will go where it’s needed most. Water in well. 
  5. Mulch with an organic mulch like woodchip or pea straw, keeping it away from the base of the plant.
  6. Water deeply, once or twice a week, depending on weather conditions, allowing to dry out slightly in between waterings. 
  7. During the growing and flowering season feed with Yates Thrive Rose & Flower Granular Plant Food. TIP: for an added boost apply Yates Thrive Natural Fish & Seaweed+ Plant Food Concentrate.
