First Editions® Cool Splash® Bush Honeysuckle
A Cool Splash of Color
Cool Splash Honeysuckle is a deciduous shrub with ornamental features. Plant several for a small hedge along your garage or use a couple as foundation plants. These are especially lovely in a naturalized area on a hillside or rough location that needs some definition.
Your Cool Splash Honeysuckle will soon become one of your favorite shrubs for its exquisite, variegated foliage. The 4-inch, ovate leaves feature dark green centers surrounded by yellow-tinted, creamy white margins.
It’s a lovely presence in any setting! Panicles of trumpet-shaped blooms appear in late spring/early summer, their brilliant yellow an elegant contrast against the showy red stems. Cool Splash will lend a lush, full appearance to your landscape, with foliage reaching all the way to the ground so no facer plants will be required.
Cool Splash will grow up to 4 feet in height with an equal spread. It is densely-branched, with a rounded habit and arching nature. Cool Splash is low maintenance so won’t require much of your time or effort, but is amenable to pruning if you so desire. You can plant it almost anywhere, but you’ll have the best foliage color in full sun. It’s reasonably long lived, reaching an age of 20 years under optimal conditions.
Your Cool Splash is aptly named as it’s a “cool splash” of color anywhere you place it in your yard. It’s a beautiful shrub with exceptional features that you won’t want to miss out on this year!
