Plant Description

Honeysuckle is a woody vine that has long been popular for adorning mailboxes, lamp posts, fences, and trellises. The Yellow Coral Honeysuckle is the yellow form of the normally coral flowering species. Masses of flowers appear in clusters from spring into early summer then sporadically thereafter. The tangerine yellow flowers are 1 to 2 inches long, narrow, and tubular. Big red berries persist in fall and early winter. Yellow 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 invasive Japanese Honeysuckle vine.
