Lonicera sempervirens ‘John Clayton’


Lonicera sempervirens 'John Clayton' has masses of lemon yellow honeysuckle trumpets from June to November.

Lonicera 'John Clayton' has lovely, pale yellow flowers that explode from the vining stems from June until November and grabs the attention of hummingbirds, butterflies, and humans alike. Bright orange-red fruits in late summer and fall. Selected by the Virginia Native Plant Society for its yellow rather than red flowers, excellent repeat bloom, clean foliage, and compact form. Named for a colonial botanist, it was found on the grounds of a 17th century Abington church in Glouchester, Virginia.
