Honeysuckle

Deciduous climber with oval, blue-green leaves. Trumpet-shaped oange-scarlet flowers with orange throats are borne throughout the summer. Vigorous.

Prefers sun to light shade and moist, well-drained soils. Tolerates drought but stays much prettier with supplemental moisture during hot, dry spells.
