My Garden in the Grove

Our Goldflame Honeysuckle


Lonicera x heckrottii

The flowers on our Goldflame Honeysuckle (Lonicera x heckrottii ) are just beautiful this summer! The vine really took off and climbed like crazy, so the top of the plant is gorgeous, but the bottom part is leggy with sporadic leaves! It’s one tough plant surviving the drought and heat of this summer, so I’m hoping it will survive some serious cutting back when we prune it. I’d love the lower part of the plant to look as beautiful as the top part!

I searched for info to help me learn more about how to take better care of this beautiful plant. Here are a few of the web sites I found:
