Honeysuckle Mint Crisp is a vigorous, highly-fragrant vine that attracts loads of butterflies and hummingbirds to the garden with its sweet scent. Plentiful late-season blooms appear in shades of ivory and cream, and slowly take on a buttery-yellow tint as fall weather arrives. Mint Crisp's speckled foliage adds visual interest to the winter garden. Deer resistant.

Plant Information

Vining Honeysuckle is well-suited to moist locations with average soils, and prefers full sun for at least half the day. Give this fast grower a trellis or support structure to climb and it will cover a 12 x 12' area with ease. You can also use Honeysuckle vine as a running groundcover, which is a beautiful solution for hard-to-reach areas and steep declines. Keeps blooming all summer long and overwinters reliably.

      A little slow to start but has been in the ground on a chain link fence for 3 months now. Has climbed about 3 feet and is a really nice honeysuckle! I water when it dries out because of no rain and it's growing and seems strong. Love, love, love honeysuckle on a chain link fence (and that is what I'm trying to cover) and it's gorgeous!

      The plant was very tiny and did not progress quickly. We will see how it does in the spring if it survives the Pennsylvania winter.

                  The plant I received was small but healthy. I planted it near a fence where it could ramble. It started out growing great until one day I noticed that the rabbits had eaten it almost to ground level. I thought it was a gonner but a few weeks latter I saw it was growing again. It is now growing up the fence and I cannot waite until next year to see it bloom.

                    Q & A

                    Plant With These:

                    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).

                    Find Your Planting Zone:
