This fast-growing Trumpet Honeysuckle sets sweetly scented, tubular orange flowers that entice hummingbirds to the garden in late spring and early summer. The stems are often purple to red, maturing to greenish-brown, and the leaves are rounded and opposite. These gorgeous blooms are followed by bright red fruit that attract a variety of other birds.

The vine itself is evergreen in warmer areas, semi-evergreen in cooler climates, and it grows 4 to 7 feet high and 1 to 6 feet wide. 'Magnifica' is better behaved than its Japanese cousin, making it a great border plant, although it does need a trellis, fence, or other support on which to grow. It's not picky about the type of soil it's in, but it does not do well in standing water. Best flowering occurs in full sun. Zones 4-8.
