Lonicera 'Scentsation' Description
Cover your deck, patio, or fence with the colorful blooms of ‘Scentsation’ honeysuckle (Lonicera periclymenum). This vigorous vine twines around any structure and explodes into hundreds of trumpet-shaped golden blooms in early summer. They last for several weeks and are followed by bright red berries, but don’t worry – ‘Scentsation’ is a non-invasive honeysuckle. You’ll be able to enjoy its abundant blooms and all of the hummingbirds and butterflies it attracts without worrying about it spreading. Another excellent, useful shrub from Proven Winners!
