Description

Lonicera sempervirens 'John Clayton' is a vigorous vine producing solid yellow, tubular blooms visited by hummingbirds and other pollinators. The flowers are followed by red berries that are very attractive to birds. Lonicera 'John Clayton' blooms heavily in late spring/early summer and continues to sporadically produce flowers into August. This semi-evergreen, woody perennial vine appreciates strong support.

Lonicera sempervirens is native primarily to the Coastal Plains of the Southeastern United States from Texas to Florida into the mid-Atlantic, but it may also be found as far northward as Maine, Michigan and Iowa.

Lonicera 'John Clayton,' with its uncommon yellow flowers, was discovered in a wooded area of Gloucester, Virginia in 1991. It's one of our favorite honeysuckles that we've grown.

Lonicera sempervirens 'John Clayton' prefers sun to part shade and moderately fertile, moist, well-drained soil. It blooms on old wood, so prune after blooming.

    We ship via UPS or USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

    All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

    Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

    We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
