Description
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.
