  • Lisianthus 'Cinderella Pink'

    Posted by Patti Tucker

Boasting a much more compact, restrained habit than most other Honeysuckles, 'John Clayton' offers masses and masses of golden-yellow flowers over an incredibly long season - from late spring through early summer, as expected, but then repeating all summer long and into fall! Discovered in 1991 in a 17th-century churchyard in Gloucester, Virginia (and named for a colonial botanist from the same time period), 'John Clayton' brings the beauty of honeysuckle into today's smaller gardens!These blooms are irresistible to butterflies, and simply blanket the vine, releasing a mild but unmistakable honeysuckle scent. They really stand out beautifully against the rounded 3-inch leaves of blue green, and after their huge display early in the season, they merrily repeat all summer and into fall! All of this from a carefree vine that reaches only 6 to 10 feet tall and 3 to 5 feet wide, and may be kept even smaller if pruned after the first flush of flowers!Evergreen in zones 8 and farther south and west, this native honeysuckle flowers best in full sun, though it will grow fine in partial shade. In late summer and early fall, while still tossing up occasional blooms, it sets thousands of small, round orange-red berries, attracting birds from all directions to long autumn and winter feasts! The berries are so handsome and profuse that they really do add another season of beauty to this vine. And if you are a birdwatcher or simply a nature lover, you shouldn't miss this splendid display.An excellent choice for new landscapes, patio containers, or bare patches needing some vertical coverage, 'John Clayton' takes off quickly and just keeps blooming! It can be planted in almost any garden soil and is hardy nearly everywhere in the contiguous U.S. Zones 4-9.
