You won't believe how easy it is to grow this new Honeysuckle, nor how fragrant its beautiful blooms really are! They open pale yellow from dark red buds, creating a two-tone look that is pretty amazing. And the best part? Well, it's probably the hummingbirds, who can't keep their beaks out of these flowers, but for us it's the everblooming nature of Peaches and Cream. From spring through summer, you won't find it out of flower!

First of all, this is a super-compact vine compared to most other Honeysuckles. It just reaches 5 to 6 feet long, the perfect size for the mailbox, trellis, lamppost, and other mild-mannered support. You won't have to go hacking through it with a machete like you do wild honeysuckle, yet there's enough of it there to make a huge impact.

Second, the bloom season. It begins in early spring in warm climates, just a bit later farther north. And it continues nonstop through late summer! None of this couple-weeks-on, month-off business -- these flowers just keep opening! And the fragrance--!

Third, once you get Peaches and Cream established in your garden (pamper it the first season, and you're good to go), you can really just leave it alone. Heat and humidity don't both it. Drought leaves it unfazed. It's a low-water plant anyway, and it really fends for itself!

Fourth, the hummingbirds will claim it immediately as their own. Get your camera and Peterson's Guide ready, because you're going to want to identify the visitors. Soon you'll see them so much (hummingbirds are territorial) that you might as well name them!

Fifth and last, this Honeysuckle is beautiful. The play of colors is breathtaking, and the sheer number of blooms is very, very gratifying. Why can't all plants behave like this? Order soon--it will probably sell out fast. Zones 4-8.

  • Butterflies like a lot of sunlight, so locate your garden in a sunny area.
  • If you live in a windy location, plant your butterfly-attracting plants near a building, fence, or hedge to protect them.
  • Plant a variety of nectar-rich plants, as well as shrubs and evergreens for shelter.
  • Since many butterflies and native flowering plants have co-evolved, try to put in some that are native to your area. The Lady Bird Johnson Wildlife Center provides lists of plants native to states and regions.
  • Certain colors are particularly attracting to butterflies – red, yellow, pink, purple, or orange blooms that are clustered or flat-topped, with a short flower tubes are especially attractive to adult butterflies.
  • Avoid using pesticides, especially around nectar-producing plants.
  • Provide a shallow source of water – try a birdbath with pebbles lining the bowl.
  • Place a rock in a sunny spot for butterfly basking and resting.
  • Create a "puddling area" by digging a shallow hole filled with compost or manure where rainwater will collect and release essential salts and minerals.
  • If you want butterflies to breed in your garden, put in some caterpillar food plants, such as parsley, milkweeds, asters, thistles, violets, clover, grasses, and Queen Anne’s Lace.
  • Since butterflies need nectar throughout the entire adult phase of their lives, try to create a design that will allow for a continuous bloom – when one stops blooming, another starts.

A Tradition of Distinction

Wayside Difference Since its founding in 1920, Wayside Gardens has brought the rarest and highest-quality plants to the garden market. Wayside was founded in 1920 by two acclaimed growers who came together to pursue their shared vision of marketing all high-end plants for the serious garden enthusiast. Originally located in Mentor, Ohio, Wayside Gardens swiftly grew a reputation for the highest-quality plants and the most sophisticated clientele. In 1975, Wayside was purchased by the Park Seed Company, and moved to Hodges, SC.  The company has flourished since then, growing to become an undisputed leader in rare and unique plant growing.

Tips for gardening in particularly hot, dry climates:


1. Water with a drip system whenever possible – soak the bed slowly and thoroughly to a depth of 10" to 12".

2. Watering deeply every 3 to 5 days is preferable to a shallow daily watering.

3. Water in the early morning, so foliage has time to dry.

4. Add a 2- to 3-inch layer of mulch or similar material to aid in water retention and help keep the roots cool during hot weather.
