  • I've grown 4 different kinds of honeysuckles in the past, including one currently, which I think died, but wasn't doing too well to begin with. A couple years ago I decided to get a couple Scentsations, and they grew quickly. They are the best honeysuckle vine I have ever grown. They have vigor and health. They didn't bloom too much last year in the spring, only a couple flowers, but the vines and growth took off. I was about to prune mid summer, but then I noticed flower buds, lots of them, so I left the vines alone, and I got many flowers and also the first honeysuckle vine I have had that has a fragrance. The ones in the past I've had, I couldn't smell them unless I shoved my nose in the flower, even then it was mild. Also, this is the first honeysuckle I've had that had beautiful red berries. I know honeysuckles are supposed to get them, but once again, all my honeysuckle vines in the past never got the berries. Now Proven Winners needs to come up with some more colors too. I love the yellows, but I would like a different color one for a different location, but I may end up trying the Sweet Summer Love clematis there instead. :)

    Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.
