This a Dutch honeysuckle so there is a possibility that it could be an invasive plant here. I haven't tried it.

Penny, I haven't grown honeysuckle...not a vine I know a lot about. Are European honeysuckles typically invasive? Gardening space in The Netherlands is usually pretty limited, so I would think they would disdain invasive vines. BTW, it's an interesting country for a gardener to visit.

It probably isn't invasive in the Netherlands but it could be here but I am not sure. We all know that Japanese honeysuckle is invasive here and there are a few others that I read are invasive also. Their native habitats are in colder climates such as some parts of Asia, Canada and Alaska
The shrub honeysuckles, Lonicera morrowii, or Morrows honeysuckle
Lonicera maackii commonly called Amur honeysuckle
Lonicera standishii
Lonicera tartarica

The ones that are native honeysuckles that grow in the lower 48 are very easy to grow once they become establishe and not invasive

Joni,

I grow Lonicera periclymenum Serotina - Late Dutch honeysuckle. It blooms mid spring to early summer. I've had it for at least 3 years and it has not shown up in any other parts of the garden. The hummers love it, no mildew problems and aphids that attached the honeysuckle on the right side (name escapes me), left Late Dutch alone. It sets berries in fall. Late Dutch is the first pic and on the left in the second pic. I took these pics 6/10/10

The is funny, I have one growing with the coral honeysuckle Alabama Crimson and the hummingbird doen't touch the periclymenum. Every spring I think of cutting it out because it is a stronger grower than its native mate and then I remember how pretty it is. A closer watch will be kept for hummer usage this year.

Ward,

What is the bloom time on your periclymenum? Here you go, Keeping me honest!!





This pic was taken the 8/9/09, first one I could find in my photo library. Maybe it does bloom mid-summer, I remember it was done blooming way before my other honeysuckles.

Mid summer seems about right. It is amazing after watching flower for years that that is the best I can do. Probably none of my friends is surprised.

The color of the blooms in Pam's photo looks a lot like Gold flame
I have never seen Lonicera periclymenum offered for sale up here but that is no surprise since I can't even find coral honeysuckle for sale here. Once I found a small Coral Honeysuckle about 3 yrs ago and it was $16 or $18 but never saw them again. Thank God for mail order.
