This is an outstanding find from the Cheyenne Experiment Station! This is by far the best large honeysuckle on the market, yet rarely used. Drought and poor soils have little effect on this shrub. This is simply one of the best shrubs we’ve seen for use in windbreaks or as a stand alone specimen! This 1999 Plant Select® winner has pale pink flowers, which bloom in profusion in early summer. You won’t see witches’ broom or aphids on this one! We have yet to see a deer or rabbit eat this plant! Watch a video of Blue Velvet Honeysuckle on our Videos page.
