Lonicera sempervirens 'Major Wheeler'

Honeysuckle

A cultivar of our native honeysuckle, this one is outstanding with clusters of red trumpet-shaped blossoms with orange interiors.  Blooms appear steadily throughout the summer and into fall. Bloom is heaviest in full sun. Prune after flowering, if desired, to keep plants smaller.

Prefers full sun to light shade and any average to loamy, well-drained soil.
