Question:

I have a yellow trumpet vine that I would like to move. It is about 10 to 14 years old. Is it possible to move it or should I leave it? It grows really well but I would like to move it away from the house.

Answer:

Ruth,

Trumpet vines are pretty resilient. Many people are looking for ways to stop them from growing and spreading, so don't worry too much about transplanting it. If for some reason it doest transplant well, you're likely to see plenty of new suckers growing up in the spot it used to inhabit. I would suggest doing it in the early spring before too much growth occurs. Cut it down to a manageable size for transplanting. Don't cut it all the way down, however, as it's better to leave a few feet of the leafy top-growth. When you dig out the root ball, make it large and try to keep as much of the dirt attached to the roots as possible. Baby your vine this season as it works to re-establish itself.

My mature trumpet vines have never bloomed yet and I think they are in too much shaded area, however, they have lots of offsprings and are rooted in the ground. If you'd like some free starters of yellow trumpet vine, I'd be glad to send any your way. They should take off well if you plant them in a semi moist area and transplant next spring to a more desirable place.

I have never had a problem with my trumpet vine not growing. It is the most aggressive thing I've ever seen. It flowers profusely. I have mine in mostly shade. I found that it is not easily moved. If you do not completely get all the root, it will grow back. It also sends up shoots all around it. So, just be sure where you plant it is where you want it permanently.

Please make sure your friend isn't allergic to trumpet vine. That stuff is horrible for those of us who are. Imagine your very worst case of poison ivy and multiply by at least 1000. It can mean a trip to the ER.

Seriously!? You cannot kill this plant - it's roots send shoots up everywhere. Just dig a shoot up - the rest of your yard will thank you.

Can you start another vine from a cutting of the existing vine?

You probably can but I have found they don't transplant easily, so I'm guessing they wouldn't be easy to start from cuttings either. Fortunately they grow easily from their seeds. Just pick one of the pods when it gets brown. There are tons of seeds inside. You can hardly stop them. They spring up everywhere in my yard by themselves. You'll have no trouble with these beautiful vines. They are easy to care for too.
