Fragrant Cloud Honeysuckle
Maintenance-Free Once Established!
This outstanding honeysuckle produces masses of large blooms all summer long. The blooms cover the plant all the way to the ground - no naked lower stems on this vine! Hummingbirds adore the sweet nectar, while the bright red berries of late summer and fall feed robins, wood thrushes, bluebirds, sparrows and goldfinches. Unlike the sprawling Japanese Honeysuckle, this vine only grows to a compact 6-10', depending on the size of its support. It also responds well to pruning, so you can keep it a bit smaller if you wish. An excellent choice to grow on a fence or trellis, or up the supporting posts of a raised deck where you can sit and enjoy the incredible perfume. Once established, this tough vine is absolutely maintenance-free. It will, however, benefit from watering the first season, while it is establishing its roots. PBR
