Lonicera sempervirens Blanche Sandman

Blanche Sandman Honeysuckle Vine

This beauty is a compact grower with a spectacular show of long, orange-yellow throated tubular flowers in spring. Often reblooms lightly in summer. Because of its semi-vining habit, it is a great choice for courtyards and other smaller spaces. After the flowers are done, the showy, bright red berries are food for the songbirds.

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).

Details
10-15' in length (cutting propagated). This re-blooming native gem fills a split rail fence in our nursery where it draws many complementary remarks from customers for its extravagant summer-long floral display. The unscented flowers are very showy with an orange-red exterior and yellow-orange throat. The hummingbirds love it! Plant it in a compost-rich, moisture retentive soil. Provide afternoon shade in areas with very hot summers.
