The vining honeysuckle begins flowering in June and continues into fall, blooming a true, bright red.
A big bonus is that these blooms are magnets for hummingbirds, and once your vine is growing and blooming, you'll see them regularly. Honeysuckle vines, when happy in a moist location with full sun will cover a trellis or wall of up to 144 sq. ft. (12 x 12). If you don't have a trellis, Major Wheeler makes a beautiful running ground cover or shrub-like mound with its dense production of beautiful deep green leaves and lots of brilliant red flowers. Keeps blooming all summer long.
