Lonicera ‘Blanche Sandman’ is a vigorous vining plant that will rapidly clamber over a tall trellis. In July, orange-red tubular flowers appear, followed by red berries. In Central New York, Lonicera may die back to the ground over the winter, but will send up vigorous fresh shoots in spring. Lonicera is easy to train on a trellis. In mild winters, plants may sprout again from old wood and rapidly cover a large area. If plants get too rangy they can be cut back severely in early spring to encourage fresh growth. Our planting gets full sun in the morning only, and seems to thrive, although it may not bloom as prolifically as it would in full sun. Deer occasionally browse Lonicera, but generally not enough to limit its vigorous growth.
