This vigorous, heat-tolerant, and nearly indestructible vine is suited to a variety of applications. It can be grown as a loose groundcover or planted on banks for erosion control. It also grows quickly on a trellis, fence, or other framework, providing a fast wind screen or source of shade. The vine blooms heavily in spring and to some extent year round. It's easy to grow and nearly indestructible. The flashy and fragrant flowers will attract hummingbirds and butterflies all summer long. The resulting fruit of the Honeysuckle flower will provide a fall treat for your local songbirds as well. Many honeysuckles will thrive in containers.
