6-8' x 5-10' wide. Major Wheeler Honeysuckle (Lonicera) puts on a hummingbird display unrivaled by any other Honeysuckle variety. Garden trials have demonstrated that this is the most profuse bloomer of its species. With its mass display of thin tubular, red-orange flowers from late spring through the end of summer and highly disease resistant foliage, 'Major Wheeler' Honeysuckle is a low care, high color addition to the landscape. Bring hummingbirds up close to your patio by training 'Major Wheeler' onto a nice trellis or pergola. A fast growing vine, use it to quickly cover unsightly fences. Partially evergreen in southern climates, deciduous in colder zones of the north. Because this blooms on old and new wood, there is no need to prune other than to shape the vine once blooms have passed. 2010 Plant of the Year.
