Product Details

Product Details

Fragrant bicolored blossoms (rosy pink outside, rich yellow within) appear from summer to fall against semi-evergreen, blue-green leaves. A vigorous climber.

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 we offer will grow readily in humus-rich, well-drained soil and are rarely troubled by insects, diseases, or deer.

For more information on the growing and care of Lonicera, click Growing Guide.




The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

The Downside to 'Gold Flame' Honeysuckle

'Gold Flame' is a lovely climbing vine with blue-green foliage and sunny, fragrant blooms. However, every summer it becomes covered in mildew and drops most of its leaves, leaving me with an unsightly honeysuckle skeleton. Since I don't want to spend my summers spraying and coddling diseased plants, I can't recommend it.

I'm impressed!

Just arrived today and was I impressed with the care taken for shipping! Absolutely the best from anywhere I've ordered in the past. Secured in carton with care taken so dirt did not come out of the pot regardless of how box was turned. Even though clearly marked with "this side up" it was turned about while postal worker got it out of the truck. Showing new growth & can't wait to plant it - will not hesitate to order from here again! Highly recommend!!!

Like the idea that I can order my favorite honeysuckle from Whiteflower Farm rather than trying to locate them locally as they can sometimes be hard to find, and looking forward to future seasons when I can order more!

Lonicera 'Gold Flame' Is A Golden

I have two trained on trellis which frame my roses of the same colors - gorgeous! The effect reminds me of Monet's Garden @ Giverny near Paris - exactly what I was going for. I love the bi-color pastel blooms against the sea green leaves. If you want height and charm, this Lonicera is a knock out! Watch out for naked legs - I have lavender and other herbs in front to cover their feet. Also, very susceptible to leaf mildew, especially in humid hot summers. I treat along w/ my roses from June on.

Latin Name Pronunciation: lon-iss'er-uh    

There are many Honeysuckle species; some are shrubs and others are twining climbers. All are fast growing, vigorous, and adaptable, generally with sweetly fragrant flowers. Climbers can be grown on a fence or other support, or trained into small trees. Utilize the shrubs in borders, as hedges or as ground covers.

Light: Full sun or partial shade.

Soil: Average garden soil.

Watering: The key to getting your new shrub or tree off to a good start is moisture. Water thoroughly after planting, and keep a close eye on the plant over the following week. Then, give it a good soaking once a week during summer, unless rainfall is plentiful (more than 1in per week). Established plants can generally get by on less water, but most grow best if the soil remains evenly moist. Water Honeysuckles sparingly in winter.

Fertilizer: We recommend against fertilizing at planting time and during the first growing season in your garden. Plants need time to settle in before being pushed to grow. Most established plants grow best if fertilized with a light hand. Here at the Farm, we fertilize our specimen trees and shrubs just once -- in early spring -- with a light but even coverage of a balanced, granular fertilizer (such 5-10-10, 10-10-10, or an organic fertilizer). If a concentrated, water-soluble fertilizer is used, please follow the manufacturers' recommendations carefully.

Continuing Care: Easy to grow. Prevent mildew with good air circulation. Climbers that flower on the previous year's growth (such as L. periclymenum) should be pruned right after they flower. Trim hedges twice during summer. For established shrubs, cut 1/5 to 1/3 of the old canes to the base after flowering to promote new growth and keep shrub in bounds. Rarely troubled by insects or diseases.
