xG-5 Trumpet Honeysuckle (Vine)

$10.00

Lonicera sempervirens

Native: Hummingbirds LOVE trumpet honeysuckle, as it is one of the earliest and longest blooming plants you can grow. Hummingbirds, bees and butterflies flock to the tube-shaped deep red flowers with yellow throats as soon as they begin to bloom. Whorls of bright red fruit form in late summer. The fruit is eaten in fall by waxwings, bluebirds and a wide variety of other birds. The slender twining stems provide cover and nest sites for a variety of birds. This is the host plant for the day-flying hummingbird clearwing moth. This is NOT invasive honeysuckle!
