A vigorous twining vine, the native trumpet honeysuckle has delicate but striking trumpet-shaped crimson blooms set against a background of dark green, smooth leaves. The flowers are particularly attractive to hummingbirds but are not fragrant. Evergreen in Florida, trumpet honeysuckle quickly covers fences, lampposts, or mailboxes. Trumpet honeysuckle is an excellent vine to use for naturalizing. Train it onto an arbor or trellis in the full sun for good, thick coverage.
