This is a popular twinning vine known for attracting butterflies and hummingbirds! They’re heat tolerant and a great addition to any landscape with its yellow or red blooms. Because of their versatility and abundance, maintaining honeysuckle vines are easy! Most do best with some type of support, taking well to a nice sturdy fence, trellis, or post. Many varieties also perform well in containers with a trellis as long as they get a regular watering, but otherwise just the occasional watering will suit this vine just fine!
