Looking for a colorful and easy-care vine that blooms all summer long? If so, you might want to give coral honeysuckle a try.
Coral honeysuckle is a great native vine that can be grown on fences and trellises.
Starting in spring, it produces clusters of trumpet shaped crimson flowers that attract butterflies and hummingbirds. It will continue to bloom intermittently throughout the summer.
Coral honeysuckle also makes a nice backdrop for other garden plants, thanks to its attractive silvery-green leaves.
It will grow in a range of conditions, but performs best when planted in full sun in slightly acidic soil.
So make room in your garden for this colorful and versatile vine!
