Noteworthy Characteristics

Need to jazz up a fence, trellis or arbor? This native honeysuckle vine can be grown throughout USDA Zones 5 to 11 and features scarlet flowers that bloom for months throughout the spring and summer and into fall. The flowers attract hummingbirds and butterflies and then mature into berries that draw songbirds in late summer and fall. The medium-sized leaves are also attractive - glossy green on top and silvery green underneath - and can provide a nice backdrop for other landscape plants. In colder climates the leaves might drop in colder winters but come back in the spring. Coral honeysuckle should not to be confused with the invasive Japanese honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica) that typically has white or yellow flowers.

Uses

Grow Coral Honeysuckle on Arbors & Arches, Fences, Mailbox, Posts, Rails, Trellises & Partitions 

Culture & Care Tips

Coral honeysuckle tolerates most soil types and conditions, but performs best in slightly acidic soil. And although it will grow in partial shade, it blooms best if given full sun. It is generally a low-maintenance plant once it's established, since it is drought tolerant and does not attract any particular pests. It may require occasionally pruning since individual stems can grow up to 15 feet in length.
