Major Wheeler Coral Honeysuckle is a contained long-season twinning semi-evergreen shrub with dark green leaves and heavy blooms.  The stems emerge purple to red before maturing to green-brown, sporting fragrant blazing orange-red flowers that bloom from spring to summer.  Grows best in the south with the roots in part sun and moist well-drained soil.  Highly mildew resistant and salt tolerant.  Coral Honeysuckles are extremely flammable.

Lonicera sempervirens is a host for the Spring Azure Butterfly and the Snowberry Clearwing Moth.  The nectar attracts hummingbirds, bees, and other pollinators while the seeds attract songbirds.
