Lonicera sempervirens 'Major Wheeler' Plants

  • $ 10.95


Major Wheeler, while still a honeysuckle is far different than the white Japanese type that  invades our woodsides and hedge rows.  This variety is a selection from the native honeysuckle that is very hard to find growing in the wild; thus they are not as invasive as one would pin a honeysuckle to be.  Major Wheeler, is slow growing, has the traditional blue-green leaves that blush red in winter, and most importantly it has scarlet red blooms that hummingbirds cannot resist.  It is perfect for arbors, trellises, and training for topiary.  A long lived perennial.
