Fragrant Cloud Honeysuckle Vine - 3" pot
Quantity: 1 plant
| SOLD OUT
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.
6-10' tall and wide, sun/part shade.
