Dropmore Scarlet Honeysuckle

Tough, fast-growing and productive, Dropmore Scarlet Honeysuckle gives you a lot of bang for your buck. You can grow it up fencing for privacy, over bland or shabby structures, or spread it over a hard-to-mow slope as a ground cover. The leaves are plentiful and energizing. New growth is tinged with red, then as it matures it turns a pretty blue-green color. It's joined by a huge wave of blooms in mid to late spring, then sporadic reblooms throughout the summer and fall. The flowers are brilliant scarlet, and the fragrance is divine. They will draw in butterflies and hummingbirds like crazy—it's an asset for looks, scent and movement in landscape design. Hungry deer usually don't bother honeysuckle.
