Fast growing 'Major Wheeler' Honeysuckle's blooms are true red and plentiful, appearing with enthusiasm throughout the summer season. This variety is resistant to powdery mildew and can even hold its own in humid environments, where it still presents fresh-looking foliage to accompany its clusters of tubular flowers. Vining and growing to 8-10' tall, 'Major Wheeler' is a non-aggressive, non-invasive honeysuckle that needs the support of a trellis, cage or fence to wind and wrap itself around. Right at home in containers and tolerant of partial shade, plant this one to attract hummingbirds. (Lonicera sempervirens)

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.
