Lonicera sempervirens 'Magnifica' is a coral honeysuckle that's native to North America and is typically considered to be non-invasive. It's extremely adaptable and fast growing, sometimes reaching mature size in as little as one grow season!
Magnifica Honeysuckle is a prolific climber, but sometimes needs a little help to get started (depending on what it's climbing). It's climbing is accomplished through its twining growth patterns, so trellis and fence setups are often best.
Foliage is deep green with a slight blue hue, and is considered to be semi-evergreen. Warmer climates will allow an evergreen existence, while colder climates will not.
Butterflies, bees, and (especially hummingbirds) absolutely love this honeysuckle!
The flowers from this honeysuckle are excellent for use as freshly cut flowers!
Coral Honeysuckle Care
Full sun is best for honeysuckles and often produces the best flowers. Locations receiving partial sun are also considered acceptable; however, too little light will cause negative growth issues.
Fertilization is suggested, especially if soil is poor. Our slow release fertilizer is a great option. Spring fertilizations are best.
Prune in the late fall or early spring. All pruning should be done using a clean tool to minimize the risk of diseases. Honeysuckle Vine 'Magnifica' blooms primarily on new wood, so pruning should attempt to maintain the cleanliness and shape of the vine by removing dead and nuisance growth. Avoid over-pruning.
Water regularly, especially after planting prior to establishment. Attempt to keep soil lightly moist, but not wet. It's suggested to place 2"-3" of mulch under this plant to help retain a light degree of ground moisture.
Space plants 3' apart.
