Trumpet Honeysuckle is an excellent choice anywhere a 'tame' vine is needed.

Coral Honeysuckle or Trumpet Honeysuckle is a native, often evergreen vine that is vigorous and easy to grow as well as easy to control, unlike its white and yellow Japanese cousin. We often see a few flowers on our vines in the garden in winter but the main show is in spring with flowers continuing on and off often until fall. For more information see our Coral Honeysuckle Growing Guide.
