Distictis buccinatoria * Blood Red Trumpet Vine, Mexican Blood Vine

Distictis buccinatoria is a beautiful red flowered vine. The Blood Red Trumpet Vine grows rapidly and can easily grow to 30 feet in length. Distictis buccinatoria will persist with a little frost but if temperatures dip into the mid 20°s F there will be substantial damage. Distictis buccinatoria requires support, either cables or a sturdy trellis will work. The Mexican Blood Vine will persist with amazingly few resources once they are established. Distictis buccinatoria prefers good soil and a South facing exposure with regular water. I have seen them bloom with North exposures, somehow surviving in 12 inch square parking lot cutouts.
