Yellow Trumpet Vine
Western Kentucky Zone 7a

My vine is blooming now and I will have seed pods available in about a month.  This is campsis radicans Golden Trumpet (you can Google Image it) and it is not the common orange, nor is it as invasive.  You will get vines from the seed pods the first year, but expect no blooms for 4-5 years.  

I only got a handful of pods last year, and they went fast!  But this year, I have lots more blooms so am hoping to share more.  Let me know if you want a pod.  There are hundreds of seeds in each so you could share as wellSmile

Seed pods are picked and ready for drying.  The vine is still blooming (6 weeks now) so I can't believe no one wants these seeds.  It is a pretty vine with unusual golden blooms.  Last year, I didn't even get enough pods to go around.  This year, no one wants any?

I would love to have some seeds since you're willing to share!  I currently have the orange trumpet vine growing in my yard (which is trying to spread it's way throughtout my yard) so it would be nice to try the yellow as well.  I am new to this website, so are located in the Dousman area?  Thanks!

Welcome to Lark's ~ you are SO lucky to be able to visit her gardens one day.  I hope to as well, but I am relocated to Western Kentucky, so Zone 7 here.  We used to live in Kenosha County but moved here in 2005.  I met Lark on another website and followed her here when she started this one.  We have never met in person but are working on that! 

You are welcome to a pod full of the yellow trumpet vine seeds.  If you have the orange then you understand how this plant operates.  The yellow is far less invasive.  I had the orange one up against my side deck and we had to get rid of it ~ it was taking over everything.  Well, guess what ~ it still comes up throught the deck boards!  But the yellow one is so pretty.   The pods are still ripe and will need to be dried so the seeds don't rot.  I can hold them until dry or you can have one right away and dry it yourself.  In your zone you should be able to put the seeds out in fall or spring.  You can send me a PM here with your address (or I can send it to Lark and then you will HAVE to stop by her place and get it!)Laugh

If you have any left and they will grow in zone 5b, I would love some.



Give a stranger one of your smiles…It may be the only sunshine they see all day!!

Ok, well now I know your zone (I questioned you about it in a PM I just sent you).  Yes, these will grow in 5b just fine ~ returning each year from the root.  I have a TON of pods and you are welcome to them!
