More Information

Description The long-lasting, vibrant flower display of 'Major Wheeler' honeysuckle (Lonicera sempervirens) begins in late spring and continues all summer. Fiery-red trumpet flowers are magnets for hummingbirds and butterflies. Your garden will be buzzing when flowers are in bloom! This native honeysuckle vine is durable and grows vigorously. It thrives in heat, humidity, and drought once established, making it easy to grow. Watch it effortlessly cover poles, trellises, fences, or arbors. Try planting it with other pollinator magnets, like butterfly bush, to create a lively pollinator garden! While the flowers may not be fragrant, they attract pollinators nonetheless. Details Botanical name: Lonicera sempervirens 'Major Wheeler'
Common name: Honeysuckle
Zone: 4 - 8
Sun exposure: Sun (> 6 hours sun)
Height x width: 6-10' x 6-10'
Flower color: Red
Foliage color: Green
Bloom season: Late spring to fall
Uses: Container gardening, cottage gardening, pollinator garden, trellises, vines and climbers
How To Grow Soil: Average, medium moisture, well-draining soils. Best in rich soils with good drainage but fairly adaptable.
Light: Sun (> 6 hours sun) is best for good flowering
Water: Once established, the plants need only moderate watering unless the summer is very dry. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions but will not tolerate standing water.
Spacing: 3 - 4 ft
Fertilizing: Honeysuckle grows so well that little or no fertilizer is necessary in most cases. If planted in poor soil, you can apply organic or slow-release low nitrogen, high phosphorus 5-10-5 fertilizer in spring (after the first growing season).
Winterizing: Consider applying mulch around the root zone in winter to protect it in exposed locations or colder zones.
Maintenance & pruning: Only lightly prune plants until they are well established. Best pruned in late winter or early spring once the threat of extreme cold has passed, and the plant is still dormant. If mature vines have become woody and overgrown, you can rejuvenate by pruning one-third of the older stems to the soil. To shape the vine, cut back overly long stems to keep the desired shape, and cut out any weak, spindly growth.

I ordered 4 plants. 3 are doing well, but have not grown much. 1 is not doing very well. It has turned brown on about 1/2 of the plant. We have gotten lots of rain and also the temperature is in the upper 90s.

They are healthy and have survived the heat. I kept them in shade.

All seven ordered plants are thriving. We've even gotten a few flowers. So much fun to watch as they make their way towards the fence that will support them into their bright and colorful future.

Not invasive AND beautiful

This is a beautiful vine! Just give it its own stand and room to grow. Hummingbirds love it 😍 make sure your stand is sturdy!!!

Fast grower!

Planted it in 2021 in front of a six foot trellis. The plant was so tiny! But in one season it grew to cover the entire trellis. No blooms the first year but hopefully it will bloom this year. I would recommend it.
