How to grow Coral Honeysuckle in Toronto?


I’m planning to plant a Coral Honeysuckle or Lonicera Sempervirens. Yet, I wonder if it will be successful to grow it in my garden in Toronto.


Coral Honeysuckle (Lonicera sempervirens) is a good choice. It was voted wildflower of the year in 2014. As the name implies the vine features bright coral red tubular flowers with orange throats. It will grow to be about 3 m tall at maturity, with a spread of 60 cm. This vine tends to be leggy near the base and should be under planted with low-growing plants. As with all honeysuckles it flowers best in full sun and has the added bonus of being mildew resistant. To learn even more about it see
