Plant Description

Our native American coral honeysuckle is a woody vine that has long been popular for adorning mailboxes, lamp posts, fences, and trellises. Masses of flowers appear in clusters from spring through July or August then sporadically thereafter. The scarlet with yellow flowers are 1 to 2 inches long, narrow, and tubular. Big red berries persist in fall and early winter. Coral Honeysuckle is best in full sun and average soil, but would also do well in light shade. This vine is sure to attract hummingbirds and your neighbor's attention. In flower, it is extremely showy. Don't confuse this with the aggressive and obnoxious Japanese Honeysuckle vine. Coral Honeysuckle is very choice, and is not overly aggressive.
