Abstract


Campsis radicans (trumpet creeper) is native to the southeastern part of the United State, being a perennial woody vine with showy red-orange flowers that are attractive to hummingbirds (Streiner, 2006). The main objective of the study is determination the Campsis radicans growing, the species being used for the eroded slopes. For this study were collected 80 cuttings by Campsis radicans and there were put in a peat and perlite substrate. The plants were placed in the greenhouse. The experiments were performed during three years (2016-2018). The determination about cutting height and annual growing was made. In 2018 it was used a treatment with a rooting hormone named RADI-STIM. In 2016 an average growth of 2.7 cm was recorded and the percentage of rooting was 23.75%. In 2017 an average growth of 6.8 cm was recorded and the percentage of the rooting is 28.75%.  In 2018 the recorded average growth was 11cm, with a percentage of rooting of 60%.  The highest number of the cutting rooted was done at cutting introduced in RADI-STIM with a percentage of 60%.
