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).

Plant Information

Winner of the prestigious Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit, ‘Gold Flame’ Honeysuckle (Lonicera × heckrottii) is considered one of the finest Lonicera selections available. ‘Gold Flame’ is an improved variety of Lonicera × heckrottii, which are also commonly known as goldflame honeysuckle. Though deciduous in colder climates, it can be semi-evergreen in warmer areas. This plant performs best in fertile, well-drained soil with average moisture. It’s generally easy to grow, both deer and disease resistant. To avoid powdery mildew, make sure not to crowd for good air circulation. This climbing vine is a great choice for adding exciting flowers and foliage to a trellis, fence, or garden structure. It grows quickly to reach its mature size of up to 15 feet tall.  Prune as needed to keep the plant tidy – it can also be pruned heavily to create a more shrub-like form around 4-6’.

Plant is shipped in a 3" Paper Pot.
