For a fast-growing, vigorous solution to those less-than-private areas of your yard, consider planting this award-winning Honeysuckle. Serotina is a dense variety that quickly scrambles over walls, fence lines and even small trees, providing you a more intimate setting in the landscape. Plant in groups near the corner of your property and create a secret garden effect that will amaze visitors to the area. Bicolor, honey-scented blooms are showy and abundant from midsummer to frost, while small red berries follow and provide a snack for appreciative backyard birds. Attracts pollinators to the scene, but is not a temptation for deer.
