Lonicera x heckrottii (Goldflame Honeysuckle)
This long-blooming, colorful honeysuckle's blooms become more interesting each day. They begin as small, tightly curled deep coral, then open as coral pink, and as they mature, the yellow "flame" dominates. It is a joy to watch. "Goldflame" grows to six feet and needs the support of an arbor, fence, or trellis. Hummingbirds seem to admire it as much as people do. Zones 6-8. Quarts.
Lonicera sempervirens "John Clayton" (Trumpet Honeysuckle)
This native honeysuckle, with pale yellow/orange, fragrant tubular flowers, was discovered by John Clayton (1694-1773), Colonial botanist and plant collector, in a church yard in Gloucester County, Virginia. This twining vine has a more compact habit than most honeysuckles, growing to around seven feet, with a spread from one to six feet, and is just the ticket for a fence or trellis. Given enough sun and average, well-drained soil, "John Clayton" is a steady bloomer, as well as a repeat bloomer. This native vine is followed by red/orange berries that add garden interest long after the flowers have disappeared. With honeysuckle, more sun means more blooms, so keep that in mind when choosing a site to plant it. Zones 4-8. Quarts.
