Fragrant Cloud Honeysuckle Vine - 3" potA favorite of Hummingbirds as well as Bluebirds!
Write a review
Exclusive! (Lonicera periclymenum 'Chojnow') We found this outstanding new Honeysuckle in Poland, in the nursery of Dr. Szczepan Markzynski. And what a find! It produces masses of large blooms over an unusually long period from late spring into fall, and the blooms cover the plant all the way to the ground—no naked lower stems on this vine! The fragrance is intense and sweet, a real delight when planted near a porch or window where you can enjoy it in good weather. Hummingbirds adore the sweet nectar of the multitude of ruby and cream blooms, while the bright red berries of late summer and fall feed robins and wood thrushes, bluebirds, sparrows and goldfinches. Unlike the sprawling Japanese Honeysuckle, this vine only grows to a compact 6-10', depending on the size of its support; it responds well to pruning, so you can keep it a bit smaller if you wish. An excellent choice to grow on a fence or trellis, or up the supporting posts of a raised deck where you can sit and enjoy watching hummingbirds sip its nectar. Once established, this tough vine needs no care, even if you leave for an extended vacation! It will, however, benefit from watering the first season, while it is establishing its roots. Its official name of 'Chojnow' comes from the old farm in the Polish countryside where Dr. Markzynski discovered it.
Zones 5-9, 6-10' tall and wide, sun/part shade.

Cloud Heneysuckle Review by Cheryl Wessel - Axtell, KS

I just received my order of two Fragrant Cloud Honeysuckle vines. First off I want to say how delighted I was at how well they were packed in shipment. They were very healthy looking plants, unlike the plants I have received from other mail order Catalogs. I'm so glad I placed my order early as I notice they are now sold out. I am anxious to see them when they begin to bloom. Thumbs Up to Audubon Workshop. Will definitely be ordering from you in the future.
honeysuckle cloud vine from Poland Review by Rose DeField - Tacoma, WA

We just received our 3 honeysuckle vines from Poland, and were very favorably impressed by the great condition they seem to be in after their long travel to Washington state! We'll rate again as we watch them grow! We live on the west side of the state near Seattle. Hope we do better than the lady in NY! Thanks!
Already flowering Review by TC - Madison, AL

I bought this in April and when I planted it, it began to grow immediately. Flowers showed up a week ago, and they are beautiful. I am waiting for the wonderful honeysuckle fragrance to show up, but I am already very pleased and will be purchasing more of these for my yard.
Disappointing Review by June Stamatas - WEST HEMPSTEAD, NY
Posted on 2013-08-16
I grew up with honeysuckle vines outside my bedroom window and was thrilled that this one was both fragrant and not as invasive. Much to my surprise, the few blossoms that have appeared this season (2 new plants bought spring 2013) have absolutely no aroma! What a let down!
Not quite as expected Review by Hollie Epp - Fayetteville, PA
Posted on 2013-08-31
I planted this honeysuckle in a trellis planter and expected it take off quickly from the reviews I read. It is now 3 months later and has finally started to fill out and bloom occasionally. Not quite as prolific as I would have liked but I expect it to be great next season.
