Flowering period

Heaviest flowering occurs in the spring with flushes of blooms through the summer.

How to grow

All-day sun will produce the most blooms, but plants will still flower when grown in part shade. Plant in a well-drained soil and keep watered until it gets established.

Care and maintenance

Easy to train. To get vines started, tie the stems to the structure you want it to climb. Overgrown plants can be cut back after flowering in the spring without losing next year’s flowers.

Where to plant

Train to climb up fences, pergolas, and posts. Read an article we wrote on how to build a simple structure to grow coral honeysuckle up.

When to plant

Best to plant is in the spring or fall (in the South), but if you pay attention to keeping the vines watered, they can be planted through the growing season.

When will my plant flower?

Plants purchased in spring may produce some flowers during their first growing season.

Native habitat and range

Along woodland edges from Maine to Florida.

Source and origin

Our stock plants were grown from seed collected along the edge of a dry woodland in Pender County, North Carolina.
