    Design IdeasThis is the most commonly seen Honeysuckle. Produces rampant growth capable of engulfing wire or chain-link fences in just a couple of seasons. A reliable, fragrant evergreen vine for a shade arbor. Excellent for screening, to drape over an unsightly wall or wood fence. A country-garden standby often trained onto dilapidated outbuildings or into the branches of dead trees. Capable of covering huge amounts of space in a short time, this vine makes a great groundcover on banks and slopes for erosion control. Be aware that is can be quite invasive.
