     Coral Honeysuckle is one of the most beautiful and sought-after vines.  It's relatively easy to control and not too heavy; it's one of the longest of the bloomers, from late spring often into late fall; and it attracts a lot of wildlife including hummingbirds, butterflies, bees and songbirds, which feed on the late summer, red berries.


     You can do so much with Coral Honeysuckle.  Train it along a fence or deck railing, allow it to sprawl like a ground cover, leave it cascading over evergreen bushes and fences.  


     What Coral Honeysuckle may lack in fall foliage it makes up for with its long-blooming, trumpet-shaped flowers and lovely red fruits.
