Goldflame Honeysuckle Lonicera x heckrottii 'Goldflame' 3Gal 15-18" Trellis
An excellent vine to use as a cover for trellis, arbor and fencing. Also works well when pruned to form a dense shrub-like shape. Purple to deep pink buds open to sweetly fragrant, golden yellow, tubular flowers throughout summer. Semi-evergreen in milder climates; deciduous in colder areas.
Thrives in average to very fertile, well-drained soils. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Apply fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Provide support such as a trellis or arbor. Prune annually to control size.
