8-10’ tall x 20-30’ wide. Don’t cheat yourself of the pleasure of honeysuckles because of invasive Japanese varieties. Grow non-invasive ‘Scentsation’ instead, and enjoy the beauty of a three-season vine in your sunny garden. Intoxicatingly fragrant, ‘Scentsation’ is also nectar-rich, attracting pollinators from bees to hummingbirds. Plant in moisture-retentive well-drained soils in a sunny site where ‘Scentsation’ has room to roam, and consider it for an evening scent garden near a patio where it can be enjoyed in the heavier air of dusk. Creamy two-lipped flowers grow darker as they age, and slowly fruit with scarlet-red berries in the fall. Pollinators aren’t the only lovers of this deep green deciduous vine. Children love to open the flowers in summer and sip the sweet nectar, so this is a great choice for children’s gardens, particularly on an arbor or teepee structure.
