Lonicera sempervirens sulphurea
Also known as: Yellow Trumpet Honeysuckle
Spectacular vine for the hummingbirds!
‘Sulphurea’ is a yellow-flowered cultivar that typically grows 10 feet high with a 20 feet spread. It is noted for its dark blue-green leaves, tubular yellow flowers and red berries. The butter cream yellow flowers (to 2” long) in terminal whorls bloom primarily from May to June, with some sporadic additional bloom until fall. Flowers are attractive to hummingbirds, butterflies and bees. Inedible red berries form in late summer to early fall and can be ornamentally attractive. Oval to obovate leaves (to 3” long) are dark blue-green.
Prune as needed immediately after flowering.
