We found this outstanding new honeysuckle in Poland, in the nursery of Dr. Szczepan Marczynski. 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, 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 their 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. Maczynski discovered it. Zones 5-9. Ships in 3" pot. Lonicera periclymenum 'Chojnow' PBR. Full Sun to Partial Shade.

Wow Review by Jessica Arthur - Detroit, MI
Posted on 2013-09-29

I received this plant in Spring, now at the end of the season, one of the branches has grown 4' produced several flowers. It is not as fragrant as I thought it would be, (hoping that is just a first year thing). It has now produced its berries, several. I must say that was a surprise, I did not realize it would have berries. My mom had a yellow honeysuckle and I don't remember any berries! Anyhow, I am quite pleased by this little surprise! I have not tried to eat one (yet) as I did some exploring see this is pretty typical of Honeysuckle and appears as though this one IS edible! double surprise! Can't wait to see what it will do next year!
