Lonicera

Honeysuckle

Grateful for fertile soil, our easy-to-grow Lonicera are hardy and long-lived. They possess smooth-edged opposite leaves and entertain an abundance of showy, whorled blooms.

Samuel Pepys called it the trumpet flower and wrote, “The bugles blow scent instead of sound.” ‘Serotina’ bears multitudes of spidery-looking, fuchsia-colored buds, which open into pink, sweet-smelling bugles that later fade to a creamy salmon color. You can prune this vigorous semideciduous vine to make it more shrublike or let its bluish green foliage climb into the branches of a Cercidiphyllum.

Blooms June–September.

Size: 6'–8' high x 4' wide; hardy to zone 6.

Customer Comment:

“I found Digging Dog in a gardening magazine and am so thrilled I did. I went to their website after reading about them and was so impressed I immediately placed an order ( after checking with Garden Watchdog of course !) My plants were delayed 3 weeks due to the hot weather. Each Monday someone from Digging Dog called, explained the situation and explained the delay. What service!! My plants arrived today happy healthy and good size. I could not be happier and will shop Digging Dog much in the future.”
