Distictis 'Rivers' - Royal Trumpet Vine
Royal Trumpet Vine is a fast-growing evergreen vine that can reach 30 feet tall with an equal spread. Showy purple trumpet-shaped flowers with yellow throats bloom against glossy green, leathery foliage. The deep lavender colored blooms fade to a pale lavender color over the long blooming season. Vines climb by tendrils and are ideal for use on fences, arbors and walls. Royal Trumpet Vine does well in partial to full sun with moderate watering needs, and should be protected from frost.
