PERENNIAL SERIES: Featuring Trumpet Honeysuckle Vines!

Trumpet Honeysuckles
Hummingbird Attractors and Fragrant Bloomers all Summer long!
Everyone recognizes that lovely fragrance of a honeysuckle plant! These flowering vines typically bloom in the spring and summer months, are heat tolerant AND deer resistant! They make great additions to any landscape and will draw abundant wildlife to your landscape with their sweet blooms!
The flashy and fragrant flowers of the trumpet honeysuckle attract hummingbirds and butterflies to your landscape all summer long. Hummingbirds LOVE the tubular, vibrant flowers that arrive on honeysuckles! To sustain their supercharged metabolisms, hummingbirds must eat once every 10 to 15 minutes and visit between 1,000 to 2,000 flowers per day!

Hummingbirds are important to the ecological system because they're such a unique bird. Three quarters of the world's flowers depend on insects, birds and bats for pollination! Of the 200 species of nectar-producing plants in North America, 150 of those depend on the hummers for seed dissemination, dispersal of pollen and regeneration. If plants don't pollinate, fertilize and reproduce, they will die.Therefore, can we conclude that is not for the hummingbird, some species of nectar-producing flowers would die and become extinct?? Probably. 

So plant a trumpet honeysuckle to help hummingbirds get their nectar for pollination!
Father's Day is right around the corner and the Trumpet Honeysuckle is such a thoughtful gift for the dad who loves the outdoors and catching site of hummingbirds outside! Not only can you get dad a thoughtful Father's Day gift.. but you can plant it with him too, adding to your memories together!
