Stunning Abundance of Deep Red Flowers
Glenda T. from KS wrote on June 21, 2019

I was looking for a red flowering vine and Major Wheeler has not disappointed! This is only its second year and get it is covered in flowers that are a treat for the hummingbirds in our yard! I've planted this at the base of a sturdy wire trellis that extends up and over a 6-foot concrete wall. Already, the vines are coming over the other side, producing a bright red flowers agaisnt a deep green backdrop. What a treat. I live in Zone 6a, and this flowering vine is a show stopper in my yard! I can't wait to watch it mature!

I planted this vine in its little 4.5" pot in the fall of 2010 on the corner of an outbuilding 50 ft behind my house. Last spring and summer it grew to the roof line and 2 ft wide. The blooms are striking and easily seen from my windows. This honeysuckle impresses. A most gratifying planting.

Beautiful plant

I love this plant. I planted it in front of my stair railing and it's grown quickly to a nice size. Pruning is not necessary but it cuts back well if you need it smaller. The foliage is thick and the flowers eye-catching. My only complaint is that it lacks fragrance.
