One of the most popular honeysuckle vines on the market – a favorite of pollinators and people alike!
Includes one pot of Lonicera 'Dropmore Scarlet' Honeysuckle.
Clusters of trumpet-shaped scarlet flowers with tangerine throats emerge continuously from late spring through fall. Rounded blue-green leaves cover the vigorous vines and create a rich backdrop for its bright blossoms.


Is this for you?
A light honeysuckle aroma draws in pollinators like a magnet. Butterflies and hummingbirds sip nectar from the abundant blooms in summer, and songbirds enjoy the bright red berries that develop in fall.

Support the vine with a trellis, arbor, or fence for a spectacular vertical effect! Delicate blossoms hang on the climbing vines from early summer to fall. 'Dropmore Scarlet' can even be grown on hills or slopes as a quick-growing groundcover that helps control erosion.

This versatile, cold hardy honeysuckle tolerates various soil types and needs minimal care. For best flowering, plant in full sun and rich, well-drained soil. Once established, 'Dropmore Scarlet' needs only moderate watering and no special care.

Grows well throughout most of the continental U.S. Unfortunately, this product cannot ship to the following states and territories: AK, HI, PR, VI, GUAM.
