The Most Heaven-scented!
The name tells you almost everything you need to know. Yes, this is the most wonderfully fragrant Honeysuckle you will ever grow -- that's almost a given! But what you might not suspect is that the scent comes from the sheer number of blooms as well as their individually strong aromas. This super free-flowering vine sets more blooms than you can believe possible!
The flowers are bright yellow and so showy, bringing bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds into the garden by the dozen. They begin in mid-spring on this twining shrub and continue in waves all through summer and into fall. Such an amazingly long season . . . and with more blooms than ever before!
Bred in Herefordshire, England, 'Scentsation' is hardy to -20 to -30 degrees F, thriving in full sun or light shade (only in the hottest climates). It reaches 10 feet long without a backward glance and easily 5 feet wide, so find a big trellis, fence, wall, or other sturdy support and watch it take off! Zones 4-9.
