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.

Hello! Thank you for your feedback. It's hard to say for certain why you're not seeing new growth since so many factors - like weather, soil type, watering, and fertilizing, all come into play. When transplanting young plants from a nursery pot to a garden, the plant allocates more energy to root development instead of shoot development (above ground). It's important for them to develop a robust root system so they can actually absorb the nutrients and water in the soil around them. Then after their root system is more developed they'll invest in their shoots and flower development.

In regards to the struggling plant, we do have a 60-day guarantee on all of our plants. Please email pictures of the plant to claims@greatgardenplants.com, making sure to put your order number and name in the subject line so that we may provide the best assistance possible. If you received your plants within that timeframe, we will be happy to apply your warranty once we receive the pictures.

Happy Gardening!
