One of several native species of honeysuckle in North America, trumpet honeysuckle is certainly the most attractive to hummingbirds, with slender, typically bright red blooms. For cultivated forms of this twining vine, including 'Alabama Crimson,' flowering begins in late spring and continues sporadically throughout the summer, concluding with long-lasting berries in terminal clusters. 'Alabama Crimson' differs from the wild-type species due to is color and repetitive blooming habit. Plant in full sun and support new stems by weaving them through a trellis or other structure for the best display.
