Dropmore Scarlet Trumpet Honeysuckle Growing and Maintenance Tips

Grows best in a moist to average, well-drained soil, in partial shade. They can handle full sun but the flowers may not last as long, and in full shade blooms will not be as prolific. Hard pruning can be done in the spring to maintain desired shape and size, however, don't cut into the main, woody trunks.
