Honeysuckle Vine Plants- are Easy to Grow and Fairly Low Maintenance
Honeysuckle – also known as the fragrant honeysuckle, January jasmine, and the sweet breath of spring – is a Chinese native that was exported to both England and the United States in the 1800s. The winter honeysuckle is in actuality a shrub that grows to around 6 to 12 feet and is covered in dull blue-green or dark green leaves that are about 1 to 3 inches long. The actual flowers are small and a creamy white; in winter they have a pink or red tint.
Honeysuckle is very easy to grow and does well in drained soil that's moist and with exposure to full sun and in partially shaded areas.
The only maintenance you'll need to do is some aggressive pruning to keep them on the smaller side. While the flowers themselves are quite pretty, the real draw of these shrubs is their lovely lemon scented fragrance and the fact that they are multifunctional. People typically use them for specimen planting, hedges, and on a trellis; the berries and nectar are popular with birds, small mammals, and bees respectively. The flowers bloom in
January and last through March.
If looking to propagate Winter honeysuckle, it can be quickly done from seeds or cuttings. The seeds can be either bought or when off of ripe berries. After cutting newly grown tips from underneath the second pair of leaves, they should be placed into plain water to grow roots. The water will then need to be replaced every 2 to 3 days, and in 3 weeks, you'll have enough sources to pot the new honeysuckle plant. After filling a large pot with soil and potting the cuttings, they should be left until late winter or early spring when its time to plant them.
One of the more tricky aspects of Winter honeysuckle is that it is considered an invasive species in specific locations. The berries' popularity with birds and small mammals means that they tend to carry them off to other sites. This results in the berries' seeds being scattered potentially germinating to the point where they overtake native species. Be sure that you live in an area that they won't cause a problem in by contacting the local cooperative extension agent.
Pink Tartarian honeysuckle, also called pink or Tartarian honeysuckle, will add both beauty and fragrance to your landscape. It grows most hardily in U.S. zones 4-9. Pink honeysuckle is a shrub-like plant, unlike its traditional vining honeysuckle counterpart. The bark on these plants is grayish and slough shredded strips of bark on older, more established branches. Younger branches appear light green to a medium brown with a red hue. The leaves of the pink honeysuckle are somewhat oval in shape and taper to a blunt tip. They are smooth in texture, hairless, and colored a dull medium green on top, while underneath the color is paler. This shrub makes a wonderfully smelling privacy hedge that can grow as high as 12 feet and spread to 10 feet in width. It is a very fast grower that will continue to spread across many additional feet in subsequent seasons. Sets of white to bright pink flowers that are about a ¾ inch long appear around late spring to early summer and lasts a few weeks. The sweet scent of the blossoms attracts hummingbirds and butterflies much to the delight of many gardeners. Once the blooms have reached completion, they turn into small ¼ inch red berries adding interest to your garden and feeding wildlife through the winter months. The berries also contain several tiny seeds which are the main contributor to the spreading of the plant in following seasons. Pink Tartarian honeysuckle grows best in an area with full sun. When planted in partial shade, fewer flowers will develop. Plants grow best in soil that is moist, fertile, and well drained, but will adapt to many less than ideal conditions. Most people include these in their gardens because they have so many redeeming qualities. Between their beautiful color, exquisite scent, ability to attract butterflies and hummingbirds, add winter interest, and provide privacy, the pink Tartarian Honeysuckle has much to offer.
The Honeysuckle Plant (Lonicera species) typically occurs as an easily cultivated flowering vine. Today, people grow over 180 varieties of this popular bloom. Many Honeysuckle Plant cultivars thrive in gardens in Zone 4 through Zone 9. This plant also adapts well to containers, making it a great indoor choice for some indoor locations.
Like a vine, the Honeysuckle Plant produces oval green leaves on opposite sides of its long stem and clusters of scented bright dangling flowers. In late Spring or early summer, its blossoms erupt in shades of white, yellow, pink, or red (the color depends upon the species). Some varieties will bloom into the fall. The Honeysuckle Plant twines readily; gardeners easily train this plant to grow on trellises, fences, trees, and walls. The vines attain lengths between 5 and 20 feet. When planted two feet apart, the Honeysuckle Plant provides excellent ground cover on hillsides.
A Frequent Perfume Ingredient
The Honeysuckle Plant's delicate blossoms produce a distinctive, sweet aroma. Perfume manufacturers sometimes utilize their fragrance. Several varieties also generate nectar, making the vines attractive to hummingbirds and pollinating insects.
The Honeysuckle Plant tolerates a range of soil conditions. Most species do require generous amounts of water. This lovely vine prefers full sun and well-drained soil.
