Lonicera sempervirens 'John Clayton'

Trumpet Honeysuckle

The tubular yellow flowers of 'John Clayton' Trumpet Honeysuckle appear on a compact repeat-blooming form. This Lonicera was found in 1991 on the grounds of a 17th century church in Gloucester, Virginia.  Lonicera sempervirens flowers on new growth, avoid pruning until after flowering.  Best grown on a support such as a arbor, fence or trellis.  Although flowers of this native plant are only mildly fragrant they are loved by butterflies and other pollinators.  Lonicera sempervirens 'John Clayton' will produce berries in the fall which are quickly eating by birds.  Named after John Clayton who was a colonial botanist and plant collector from Gloucester County, Virginia.
