Fragrant Cloud Honeysuckle

A hummingbird magnet
We found this outstanding new honeysuckle in Poland, in the nursery of Dr. Szczepan Marczynski. And what a find! It produces masses of large blooms over an unusually long period from late spring into fall, and the blooms cover the plant all the way to the ground – no naked lower stems on this vine! The fragrance is intense and sweet, a real delight when planted near a porch or window where you can enjoy it in good weather. Hummingbirds adore the sweet nectar of the multitude of ruby and cream blooms, 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 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 watching hummingbirds sip their nectar. Once established, this tough vine needs no care, even if you leave for an extended vacation! It will, however, benefit from watering the first season, while it is establishing its roots. Its official name of 'Chojnow' comes from the old farm in the Polish countryside where Dr. Maczynski discovered it. Lonicera periclymenum 'Chojnow' PBR.
