Lonicera sempervirens (Coral Honeysuckle)
Don't roll your eyes at the mention of putting honeysuckle in the perennial border. This lovely, coral-flowered native (in the background) isn't just for the woodland garden. It can be easily tamed, too, if grown on a fence, arbor, or other support. In fact, I have had Lonicera sempervirens planted on a fence for at least 20 years, and it's almost too well-behaved. It is a real beauty when in bloom, especially when planted with a yellow honeysuckle. Give this one a place with sun to help ensure lots of blooms. Zones 3-8. Quarts.
