Lonicera x brownii 'Dropmore Scarlet', was bred by Dr FL Skinner of Dropmore, Manitoba in the 1950s. It is a cross between L. sempervirens and L. hirsuta and is incredibly hardy to zone 3 performing extremely well across the prairies and other cold climates as well as in coastal BC. The clusters of red tubular flowers open to reveal orange throats and will bloom almost continuously through summer and into fall. Though not fragrant the floral display and popularity with hummingbirds makes up for it. Plants will remain semi-evergreen through the winter in coastal BC. Plant to intertwine with clematis or allow to grow onto a fence, trellis or pergola or into large climbing roses, shrubs or small trees.
