Lonicera x heckrottii, Honeysuckle, Goldflame

Cat# 1139 Goldflame Honeysuckle is thought to be a hybrid between Lonicera sempervirens and L. americana, but whatever its parentage, the flowers and fragrance of this vining Honeysuckle are exquisite. Rose-pink tubular buds open exposing very pale tangerine colored petals (more-or-less 4 uppers and 1 lower). The outsides and edges of the petals are pale pink. These are the most lusciously fragrant flowers, like Gardenias, and they are produced on new growth from spring to fall. Foliage is like Coral Honeysuckle but more glaucous beneath and is evergreen into the mid 20s. You must plant this where the perfume can permeate the air and drift your way, preferably in full sun and average soil.
