Beginning in late winter and early spring clusters of red tubular flowers tip the red tinged new growth of this native Honeysuckle. Louisiana Red Coral Honeysuckle is an Almost Eden introduction selected from our local population of this species which flowers over an extended period and has beautiful red tinged new growth and red stems. Of the selections that we grow here it is one of the first to begin flowering and just in time for the first Ruby Throated Hummingbirds to arrive in the area. Well-established plants grown in a full to mostly sunny position can flower on and off throughout the growing season. Pollinated flowers are followed by clusters of clear bright red fruit that the songbirds enjoy. Coral Honeysuckle makes an easy and low maintenance long flowering native twining vine well-suited to growing on arbors, fences, and trellises. Item# 11544
