Plant Information

This vining honeysuckle is the most popular, and most people think the most beautiful. The flowers begin in June and continue into fall--bright red with orange throats. And after bloom, you'll enjoy bright red berries, too.

A big bonus is that these blooms are magnets for hummingbirds, and once your vine is growing and blooming, you'll see them regularly. Dropmore Scarlet, when happy in a moist location with full sun at least half the day, will cover a trellis or wall that's up to 144 sq. ft. (12 x 12).

      Comments about American Meadows Honeysuckle Vine Dropmore Scarlet:

      This plant was placed next to a fence pole and took off. Within 1 year it has covered pole and has bloomed. I love the color and even the foliage is attractive.

          USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

          To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

          • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
          • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
