Description: Highly popular, Lonicera x brownii ‘Dropmore Scarlet’ (honeysuckle) is a vigorous semievergreen with masses of stunning flaming scarlet, tubular flowers that open to reveal orange throats. Produced in succession from early summer to fall, they eventually give way (in hot summers) to small, bright red berries. Magnets for hummingbirds, the cheerful blossoms constrast nicely with the semi-evergreen foliage of rounded blue-green leaves. Although not fragrant, this honeysuckle makes up in colour and still is a terrific garden plant.
