Comments about High Country Gardens Lonicera arizonica:

Native plants are a tough sell, and there is a flowering Magnolia in China that displays its first bloom at age 32 if you're lucky. This plant clearly dos not bloom in its first few years, at least here in Salt Lake. I planted 3, and 2 grow really well. I had hoped they would climb trees, like vines from the MidWest where I grew up. These are desert vines and do not climb, they amble through my yard which mostly would be classified as a Savannah. The one that died was dry, and dark, a double stress. The dry area that gets direct sun for a few hours a day, this two plants grow, and will bloom I hope. It's year 4 or 5. Nonetheless, my two plants keep establishing their territory.

      Q & A

      USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

      To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

      • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
      • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
