Syn. Distictis riversii or Distictis 'Rivers'

Common name: Royal trumpet vine

Native to: Mexico

 

A cross between Distictis buccinatoria (the Red trumper vine) and D. laxifora. This is a fast growing evergreen vine reaching 30 feet tall and wide. Like the Red Trumpet Vine, one of its parents, it has green somewhat-leathery 4 inch long leaves with tendrils that form disks so it can climb fences and structures. Showy pink-lavender flowers fade to light lavender throughout the warm months. Plant in full sun to part shade and water occasionally in the summer.
