    Product Description

    Major Wheeler stands head and shoulders above any other red honeysuckle! Its flower power is unsurpassed in the genus; it is blanketed in bright red, tubular blooms in late spring, and they just keep coming all summer, especially if trimmed back after the first flush. Its foliage is dense, clean and disease resistant – not a spot of mildew in sight! And its restrained habit (6-8' tall and wide, depending on the support) makes it ideal on a modest trellis or open fence. Hummingbirds adore the nectar, and the bright red berries of fall are popular with songbirds. Plant in well-drained soil in sun to light shade (the more sun, the more flowers) and prune to best suit your site. Lonicera sempervirens 'Major Wheeler'.
