Highly popular, Lonicera × brownii 'Dropmore Scarlet' (Honeysuckle) is a vigorous semi-evergreen climber with masses of stunning, flaming scarlet, tubular flowers that open to reveal orange throats. Produced in succession from early summer to fall, they eventually give way (in hot summers) to small, bright red berries.
This vining honeysuckle is the most popular, and most people think the most beautiful. The flowers begin in June and continue into fall--bright red with orange throats. And after bloom, you'll enjoy bright red berries, too.
A big bonus is that these blooms are magnets for hummingbirds, and once your vine is growing and blooming, you'll see them regularly. Dropmore Scarlet, when happy in a moist location with full sun at least half the day, will cover a trellis or wall that's up to 144 sq. ft. (12 x 12).
