    Comments about High Country Gardens Lonicera reticulata Kintzley's Ghost:

    I bought my Kintzleys Ghost three or four years and it seems more beautiful every year. It's a unique beauty and I get so excited to see it bloom every year. The first year I was watchful and watered it until established. Now that it's settled I don't need to go out of my way to water it and it's held up through some wacky springs recently. Can't say enough about the joy this plant has brought me.

        This plant arrived so small I wondered if it was even alive. I tried to nurse it along, but later realized it was futile. I was so excited because it is such an unusual Honeysuckle.

          Comments about High Country Gardens Lonicera reticulata Kintzley's Ghost:

          Kintzley's Ghost leaves have that striking paleness about the same shade as sage or russian olive, and unique yellow blossom protruding from the leave's center which makes it a real standout when grown amongst darker green-leaved Lonicera and Clematis

            I planted this alongside another native variety, Major Wheeler, for a natural, flowing effect. I have been very pleased with both purchases from HCG. In short order, my West Texas yard will be filled with wildlife attractive blooms. Delighted!

                Q & A

                Suggested Companion Plants:

                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).

                Find Your Planting Zone:
