Coral Honeysuckle is the Cinderella of vines. It might not have the showiness of some of its counterparts, but do not let its modesty fool you. Unlike Wisteria or Trumpet Vine, it does not want to take over the world and destroy everything in its path. It is perfect for arbors and fences where it truly shines while behaving well. As it is the case with many vines, it prefers cool feet and a sunny location for best flowering. Coral Honeysuckle can be pruned after flowering to shape and control growth. It is loved by hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies alike.
