This takes a little time to get established but it is great for vertical appeal and most definitely will attract hummingbirds guaranteed!! Lots of blooms but sadly absolutely NO fragrance at all. Still great for the bird gardener

I've had this plant before and I love it. It arrived in excellent condition. Lost my mature plant in a storm and I'm sure this new one it will perform as good as my last one, which I purchased from Wayside G. Never have had a problem with a Wayside Garden's plant!

I planted in April 2015 and although it grew and climbed quickly I literally only got one flower all year. It survived the winter nicely so I'm hoping to get a wall full of flowers this year! Keeping fingers crossed.

This flowering vine grows fast and is covered with flowers all season. I have never seen any plant that draws hummingbirds like this Major Wheeler honeysuckle.

I planted this vine in its little 4.5" pot in the fall of 2010 on the corner of an outbuilding 50 ft behind my house. Last spring and summer it grew to the roof line and 2 ft wide. The blooms are striking and easily seen from my windows. This honeysuckle impresses. A most gratifying planting.
