Lonicera sempervirens Major Wheeler

Lonicera sempervirens Major Wheeler

Bring on the hummingbirds! 'Major Wheeler' is the best red twining Honeysuckle we've seen -- a blanket of tubular, reddish orange flowers from late spring through summer, with no sign of mildew on the foliage. Later, the red berries attract goldfinches and robins. It's a selection of our native species, Lonicera sempervirens, and plants are both carefree and non-invasive. They bloom on the previous year's growth as well as new growth. Regular pruning is not required -- any pruning to shape the vine can be done once flowering is over for the season. Do provide a trellis, fence, or post with wire grid for support.

Lonicera is a large group of (mostly) deciduous shrubs and vines from Europe, Asia, and North America. They are known for their brightly colored, sometimes fragrant flowers. The vines will grow readily in humus-rich, well-drained soil and are rarely troubled by insects, diseases, or deer.
