Dropmore Scarlet Trumpet Honeysuckle
Lonicera x brownii 'Dropmore Scarlet'
|Description||Long blooming season of showy tubular flower clusters backed by attractive blue green foliage. Handsome, dense vine for fences, arbors, even as a groundcover. Long lasting red berries follow the blooms. Deciduous.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Mature Size||Fast growing, upright vine with stems 10 to 20 ft. long.|
|Landscape Use||Espalier, Privacy Screen, Ground Cover|
|Design Ideas||These beautiful Fuchsia-like flowers are remarkably hardy. Coral-red flowers are very showy when cascading off wood fences, twining up lattice and shrouding unsightly wire or chain-link fencing. Excellent for shade and color on arbors overhead or snaking up stone or concrete pillars. Particularly nice when allowed to cascade off concrete block or railroad tie retaining walls. If left to sprawl, it will behave a lot like groundcover on slopes and embankments.|
|Companion Plants||Coneflower (Echinacea); Bee Balm (Monarda); Butterfly Weed (Asclepias); Butterfly Bush (Buddleja); Aster (Aster)|
|Care||Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer. Provide support such as a trellis or arbor. Prune annually to control size.|
