One of the most popular honeysuckle vines on the market – a favorite of pollinators and people alike! Clusters of trumpet-shaped scarlet flowers with tangerine throats emerge continuously from late spring through fall. Rounded blue-green leaves cover the vigorous vines and create a rich backdrop for its bright blossoms. Includes one actively growing plant in a Euro pot.

A light honeysuckle aroma draws in pollinators like a magnet. Butterflies and hummingbirds sip nectar from the abundant blooms in summer, and songbirds enjoy the bright red berries that develop in fall. Support the vine with a trellis, arbor, or fence for a spectacular vertical effect! Delicate blossoms hang on the climbing vines from early summer to fall. 'Dropmore Scarlet' can even be grown on hills or slopes as a quick-growing groundcover that helps control erosion. This versatile, cold hardy honeysuckle tolerates various soil types and needs minimal care. For best flowering, plant in full sun and rich, well-drained soil. Once established, 'Dropmore Scarlet' needs only moderate watering and no special care.
