    I have a ton of red trumpet vine seeds available. I never sold seeds before, but I will give you lots.

    Who may be interested, and what should I charge?

    What do they look like?
    Are they easy to grow?

    I like to vine things on my pens, this year I grew gourds up my pens. May do that again next year, but always looking for other ideas.
    Will do a short search online for pictures of them.

    They look really pretty and sound like they may survive our winters. If they do die off thats ok also.

    Do they take over like morning glory?

    Sounds like they are quick growers to 30 in length.

    Not sure but do they like shade or full sun?

    Let me know when you decide a price [​IMG]

    I am especially fond of vines too, so let me know as well when you decide on a price.

    I thought I had planted 18 cucumber baby plants that I had germinated from seeds (from walmart that said cucumber) and they turned out to be gourds!! I let them grow and just took up all the vines and about 60 gourds! They are all over my shed, hopefully they will dry out and I can make birdhouses ... and my friends can make birdhouses...and thier firends can make birdhouses....lol!! never had mixed up seeds before and certainly have never grown gourds before! They took overhalf of my yard with all their heavy vines. ...did miss the cucumbers though, haha!!

    Quote:Extremely...at least here in the South they are.


    Quote:The leaves will, but the vine itself remains and just continues from where it stopped.

    Quote:Yes, but the vines get thicker and stronger.

    Quote:They are.

    Quote:Here, it doesn't seem to matter, but they seem to grow slightly faster in partial shade.

    Hmmm not sure I will want them to take over everything.
    I guess I will have to think about it.

    They will become invasive if left alone. I trim my vines in the fall before they go to seed. They do attract hummingbirds.

    Send me a self-addressed-stamped envelope, and they are yours. You can PM me.....

    Does anyone know if the plant is poisonous? If not, it would make good shade on the chicken pens.
