  • Description

  • Notes

Halls Honeysuckle is a vigorous, hardy, twining vine with deep green, oval leaves and fragrant white flowers that change their color to yellow. It is good as a groundcover or for covering fences. Flowers June through October; there are showier honeysuckle, but none as fragrant, except maybe 'Purpurea'. Can grow 15 to 30 feet, or more. Deciduous.
Needs support to become established. Its a twining vine, so it has to have something to wrap its tendrils around. This is an aggressive vine, and so ought to be avoided in riparian corridor areas, or in wild-land interface areas as it could escape and over-take native plants.
