TrumpetcreeperA perennial woody vine with showy red-orange trumpet shaped flowers that can reach 40 feet or more in length. Trumpetcreeper is primarily a weed of fencerows, landscapes, and wooded areas, but can become a problem in areas where continuous no-tillage agriculture is practiced. Mature leaves are opposite and composed of several similar leaflets also arranged oppositely from one another. A single leaf may contain 7 to 15 leaflets that are 1-3 inches long, 1/2 to 1-1/2 inches wide, and coarsely toothed. Stems climb or trail along the ground and become woody with age. Stems root when they come in contact with the ground.
