Mrs Review by Darla Ferguson - Coffee City, TX

We ordered two of your plants a yr ago and they arrived healthy and have really covered our trellis already. We admit we were sceptical of ordering thru the mail but we are so impressed with the quality you sent. Will definately use you again and recommend you to everyone.

I ordered two of these, they came in little 2 inch pots. One was a little bigger and thrives right away when I planted it in the same pot as the climbing rose. The smaller one looked like it was dead but then came back slowly. I already had a bigger one bought elsewhere and the humming birds love the flowers.

Awesome. Buying another! Review by Karen - Pinckney, MI

Planted this last year and no blooms. Full of blooms and climbing all over the trellis this summer. Hummingbirds are here early because of it. Buying another! Love it!!!

Give it a few years to reach its potential. I have several planted to cover a chain-link fence in a mostly sunny, windy spot, Zone 4. It blooms all Summer, & it's the last plant blooming in the Fall. A hummingbird favorite.

Shot right up! Review by Kate Fevola - Bayville, NJ

I planted two of these at my mother's house 2 years ago. They are in full sun, and they shot right up! I had to by a trellis almost immediately. Last summer, they were blooming profusely and they had to be at least 5'. Very happy with them.

The Major Wheeler Honeysuckle (lonicera sempervirens) is a deciduous woody vine with beautiful red and gold blooms that give off a wonderfully sweet fragrance. This lonicera sempervirens spreads quickly, covering roughly six to ten feet, making it a stunning choice to cover trellises, walls, fence posts, or arbor. The short, oblong to heart shape leaves are medium green in color and are born in opposite pairs on the stems. The red and gold flowers each take on the distinctive form of a small tubular or funnel shape.

This particular variety of honeysuckle blooms all summer and into fall, whereas most varieties only bloom for a few weeks. Our Major Wheeler Honeysuckle is also mildew-resistant. The slower vining growth rate compared to other varieties of lonicera make this vine much easier to maintain than other honeysuckles. The vine can also be pruned to the desired shape to suit the needs of your garden. The planting requirements for the Major Wheeler Honeysuckle include being placed in an area with partial shade in most regions except for the far north, where it can enjoy full sun exposure. Soil should be moderately fertile and be kept well-drained.
