Lonicera sepmpervirens or Coral Honeysuckle is a beautiful, slender, tendriled vine with showy trumpet shaped flowers in bright coral orange red with yellow throats. It is a profuse seasonal bloomer and a quick, vigorous grower.

This vine is evergreen and is native to the Southern and parts of the Midwestern United States. With good care. runners can easily become 10 to 20 feet long and will provide good, quick cover on a trellis, fence line, or other support, but is not overly aggressive or invasive.   It is a great choice for embankments or other areas were quick ground cover or erosion control is desired.

The Coral Honeysuckle is not fragrant, but is an excellent nectar source, and does attract butterflies and hummingbirds. The flower is followed by a bright maroon color berry that attracts birds.

Direct planting of 4 inch starter size plants is not recommended, so for the best results pot the new starter into a larger pot and allow it to grow a bit before setting out. When the new pot has filled with roots, here are a few hints for successful growing in the landscape within the recommended USDA Zone Range.

Best placement is in full sun in well draining soil. Coral Honeysuckle will grow in wide range of soil conditions. Care should be taken not to overwater. Leaf spotting, yellowing and thin spindled growth are symptoms of a root zone that is staying too wet.

  • Plant in well draining, fertile soil. Amend planting area with high quality compost as might be needed.

  • Supply supplemental irrigation, but take care not to over water. Water thoroughly, then allow to dry down between waterings.

  • Feed a high quality, slow release fertilize with the initial planting and yearly in the early spring thereafter.

  • Affix to support.

  • Prune lightly and often when young and becoming established to build strength and internal branching.

  • Plant early in the season in colder zones and mulch heavily well ahead of first frost. 

  • Prune for maintenance soon after flowering. Avoid pruning in the late fall and winter.
