5 years ago I planted two trumpet vines to grow over the arbor. When I bought them the guy says "in 3 years you won't even believe you have an arbor these will be so big." ok, still waiting...let's just say they've taken a little more time then he anticipated. The worst part is that they grow all over wild and bloom like crazy. Well, 5 years later I have potential blooms so I am tracking the progress.
