Lonicera sempervirens 'Manifich'

Manifich trumpet honeysuckle

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 'Manifich,' flowering begins in late spring and continues sporadically throughout the summer, concluding with long-lasting berries in terminal clusters. 'Manifich' differs from the wild-type species due to is repetitive blooming habit; this cultivar is likely derived from or named to reference the similarly orange-centered 'Magnifica.' Plant in full sun and support new stems by weaving them through a trellis or other structure for the best display.
