Plant Features

The Kintzley's Ghost® honeysuckle vine, a resplendent heirloom variety, makes a triumphant resurgence into cultivation after years of obscurity. Gracing gardens in late spring, it showcases its radiant yellow trumpet-like blossoms, only to be outdone by the magnificent silver bracts with red berries that envelop the vine through summer. The unique blue-toned foliage brings an added layer of texture and intrigue, painting a picture of botanical wonder.

A magnet for butterflies, the vine's blend of golden blooms and blue leaves creates an entrancing visual tapestry. Notably, Kintzley's Ghost earns its laurels for being non-invasive, pairing its stellar aesthetics with an undemanding nature. With its tubular floral formations making a prominent appearance in June, they are encased in pristine white, circular bracts. These bracts, in a marvel of nature, retain their luminosity well into autumn before they yield to the season's transition.

Perfectly versatile, the vine effortlessly ascends various structures, from walls and fences to pergolas and large, venerable trees. Its true essence, however, is perhaps most resonant in woodland gardens, creating a serene, forest-like ambiance. While its blossoms don't carry a fragrance, their visual allure remains undiminished, ensuring the Kintzley's Ghost honeysuckle vine stands as an unparalleled garden centerpiece throughout its vibrant life cycle.
