The Loniceras or Honeysuckle Vines are among the best known and loved cultivated vines worldwide. Lonicera Purpurea is an improved cultivar of the common Japanese or Hall's Honeysuckle.
It is as easy to grow and quick to establish as it's green leaved cousin, but is better behaved, less prone to escaping the intended planting area, along with interesting deep green leaves with a distinctive red to purple colored backside that deepens to almost all over burgundy in cooler weather.
Purple or Red Leaved Honeysuckle is a reliable and prolific bloomer that bursts into lush clusters of elongated trumpet shaped flowers that begin as fat pink buds, open to nearly pure white with a slight pink blushed edge and reverse and then slowly fade to yellow over a span of up to 2 weeks. The bloom cycle is also slightly longer and a bit later than the common Japanese, often lasting into early summer, and throwing some scatter flowers again in the fall. All those are great features, but the best by far is the heavenly fragrance.
