‘Dropmore Scarlet’ Honeysuckle


‘Dropmore Scarlet’ Honeysuckle

Lonicera x brownii 10-20'. Tall climbing native (non-invasive!) honeysuckle developed by FL Skinner in Manitoba.

Jazzy whimsical whorled clusters of 1½" scarlet-orange tubular flowers bloom profusely and tirelessly from early summer into late fall. Attracts butterflies and bees but especially loved by our ruby-throated hummingbird. Striking blue-green foliage is perfoliate, appearing as if the red stems were growing through a single cupped disk. Finely shredded peeling bark makes an interesting winter display.

Great for fence or arbor or cut back like a perennial for a low rangy mound in the garden. Easy to grow, generally free of problems though susceptible to aphids. Flowers the first year. Likes average well-drained soil and full sun. Both parent species native to North America. Z3. Maine Grown. (well-rooted transplants)
