Campsis x Tagliabuana 'Grenadine' is a new introduction, bred specifically for robust growth and an abundance of bright red flowers over a long period. This vigorous climbing plant comes into bloom as early as June with large trumpet flowers and keeps going until September.
Each flower is a subtle shade of bright red with a slight orange tone on the reverse and are produced in loose clusters. The throat of the flower is filled with short curved stamens, and the coral red blooms contrast magically with the dark green, glossy, deciduous foliage. The vine is self clinging, so needs only minimal tying in to get it started - 'Grenadine' is a sturdy climber and will run up any support be it trellis, arbour, a wall or even an old tree
A cross between Campsis radicans (native to the hot and dry regions of the south-eastern United States), and Campsis grandiflora, (from China) this is a hybrid that has inherited the best properties of both parents with the hardiness of radicans and the sturdy stems and spectacular flowers of grandiflora as well as good resistance to disease.
Sure to be a garden favourite, 'Grenadine is a fast-growing vine which will reach more than H6m x W4m, although can easily be restricted by pruning to size. We supply an established plant in a 1L pot, ready to plant straight out.
