Lonicera sempervirens 'Cedar Lane' (Caprifoliaceae)
'Cedar Lane' is an outstanding native honeysuckle selection — leaves emerge plum-purple to red, and are unusually long for this species. Narrow, tubular blooms are carmine-red with a yellow throat, perfect for hummingbirds. Our stock plant at Niche has flowered as early as February and often into June, an uncommonly early and long bloom period. Provide some assistance in climbing, as it is not an aggressive twining spreader.
