#ProPlantTips for Care:

Versatile, easy to grow, and hardy, Dropmore Scarlet Honeysuckle loves the full sun and is highly disease-resistant and adaptable. These are appreciative of some afternoon shade during the hottest parts of summer in warmer growing zones. Honeysuckle are not particular about soil type, though these Vines love any well-drained soil that ranges from acidic to alkaline. Just provide good air circulation and water to keep these two-tone flowers going strong all summer!

Take care when applying lawn fertilizers near flowering shrubs. These high-nitrogen formulas are designed to produce foliage, but will not support flower development. Instead, apply an all-purpose fertilizer for blooming plants in early spring. Reapply in mid-summer, following label directions for application rates.

Flowering best in average moisture, Dropmore Scarlet is very drought tolerant once established. You can apply a 3-4 inch deep layer of arborist mulch and& compost around the base of your Honeysuckle to keep it happy! Extremely low maintenance, these won't need to be pruned often but can be trimmed back after flowering or in the late winter/early spring. Because they are fast-growing, overgrown vines can be cut back hard when dormant or renewal pruned every 3-5 years.
