Special Attributes

‘John Clayton’ is a yellow flowering variety of the North American native Lonicera sempervirens. This honeysuckle was found in 1991 in woodlands on the grounds of a 17th century church in Gloucester, Virginia. Not only does it produce loads of unique yellow flowers in spring, this variety is also prized for its tendency to rebloom through summer, its more compact growth habit (to only 12 feet height/length), and the profusion of bright red berries in fall. 

This vine does not cling to walls and other surfaces, however, it will grow up and on just about anything that provides its twining vines something to twine around. 



Landscape & Garden Uses

John Clayton Honeysuckle is a must for hummingbird gardens! Growing up to 12 feet in length, it is ideal for use to climb along the top of fences, on a trellis, on a mailbox or pole, over an arch, arbor or pergola, or any other structure that will provide something for the vines to twine around.

Spacing:  3-4' apart to cover fences or other structures



Cultural Preferences

John Clayton Honeysuckle is easily grown in average, moist but well-drained soils and full sun to light shade. The vine produces more flowers and is more vigorous in full sun, where it covered a 10 foot wide section of 4 feet high chain link fence in our gardens in just a few years. We recommend at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day.
