NEW IMAGE - "TRUMPET VINE"
Another addition to my ongoing Antiques Flower Series is the Trumpet Vine, also known as trumpet creeper. Botanically named "campsis radicans," the vine is found mostly in the southeastern U.S. naturalized in fields and woody areas.
The plant will climb up to 10 feet high in a spectacular color bloom in summer.
Bloom color will range from cadmium orange to a dark reddish orange. I've decided to depict the flower in a deeper orange color to emphasize the dramatic showy clusters.
