To give you a rough guide through the profusion of the campsis colours, we sorted them by name, colour, size, and hardiness:

1. Campsis radicans – is the basic species of the hardiest trumpet creeper with long red flowers, usually bright orange on the outside, suckers are long and thin, buds form a cluster.

2. Campsis radicans „Flava“ – golden yellow flowers of the previous, also yellow on the outside, bright green leaves and medium-thick, long new suckers, buds form a cluster, very hardy.

3. Campsis radicans “Flamenco” – a variety of the basic radicans, with orange-red flowers that are mostly bright red on the outside, suckers are long and thin, buds form a cluster.

4. Campsis grandiflora – this is the basic species of the Chinese big-flower version, flowers are 7-10 cm wide, salmon pink with yellow throat and light orange on the outside, buds form a raceme that keeps growing, making news buds and flowers. It is hardy on sheltered, south-facing walls; it does not make long suckers.

5. Campsis x tagliabuana „Madame Galen“ – this is a beautiful cross between c.radicans and c.grandiflora, so it has salmon-red flowers that are mostly red on the outside, too. It flowers more abundantly than radicans and the size of the flowers is much larger, buds form a raceme, suckers are medium-sized, thick. Very hardy.

6. Campsis x tagliabuana „Indian Summer“ – also a cross between radicans a grandiflora, flowers are deep orange all over, buds are formed in a raceme, suckers are short and thick. Very hardy.

7. Campsis grandiflora „Morning Calm“ – a selection of c.grandiflora with extended hardiness and large, coral red to orange flowers with yellow throat. Flowers are orange on the outside; buds grow on a raceme that keeps growing, making new buds and flowers till the first frosts. This variety is patented in the USA and not yet licensed in Europe. Hardy on sheltered locations.

Note: depth of the colours may slightly vary on various locations, soils and sun exposures.
