Plant Description

Differing from the typical salmon red coral honeysuckle, 'John Clayton' coral honeysuckle is a yellow form found at an old church in Gloucester, Virginia and named after the 17th century botanist, John Clayton. It is a bit more compact growing 6 to 12' long, and after its primary bloom period in late spring, it reblooms periodically throughout the summer and fall ending with a good crop of bright red/orange berries. Semi-evergreen and softly fragrant, it would be nice growing over a porch railing or sprucing up a mail box. Give it full sun or light shade and average soil.
