Coral Red honeysuckle is an evergreen, woody vine and will climb a fence or trellis. It seems to be growing at a very manageable pace and from what I understand, it will be easy to contain.
Coral Red honeysuckle has a really interesting bloom. The two-inch red flowers are tube shaped and yellow inside. The foliage is bright green and quite attractive.
It doesn't have a fragrance but the colors are vibrant and bright which I find very appealing.
It will produce red berries in the late summer to early fall.
Coral Red honeysuckle is proving to be a great plant all around--for color, for ease of maintenance, and for attracting wildlife (hummingbirds, bees and butterflies like the nectar, birds like the berries).
This plant will do well in sun or partial shade in zones 4 through 9.
Dave, at Growing the Home Garden, wrote a post about Coral Red Honeysuckle not too long ago. He has information and provides a link on propagating it, as well.
Today I am thankful for easy to maintain, native plants.
