Our Wall Of Honeysuckle

    I don’t know if you are aware that Honeysuckle is considered invasive now. Maybe there is some kind that I don’t know about that you have. They have a tendency to overtake and crowd out other native species of plants, so most areas in the country are trying to get people to stop planting honeysuckle. Also, be careful because most Honeysuckle attracts female mosquitoes to lay eggs and favors survival to adulthood. You could end up next year with a mess of mosquitos.

    I lived in a house a few years ago in which Honeysuckle ivy had been planted by the previous owner. The Honeysuckle eventually grew really out of control. The mosquitos were everywhere to an abnormal point. We tried everything to get rid of the mosquitoes, and no matter how hard we tried to trim up the honeysuckle vines, it was just a mess. Eventually, we had to get help getting rid of the Honeysuckle. It smelled good, but I will never plant Honeysuckle. One last thing, Honeysuckle is extremely poisonous to animals including dogs. Be careful.

      Thank you for sharing your feedback with Honeysuckle. It’s still readily available at all of our local nurseries and I even asked questions about it before buying it. Hopefully we don’t have a bunch of issues with it. Luckily, it’s in a confined area and it’s easy to trim back. I’ll keep an eye out for mosquitos.

    I did this exact thing with the willow trellis and honeysuckle on the side of my house! I am a year in and the honeysuckle has grown super big and heavy, so I’m hoping the trellis lasts a few more years.

      Oh man! Fingers crossed! 🤞🏻 Ours has grown a ton in a year too, but the trellis still appears to be in good shape. Hopefully it will hold the weight!
