Lonicera japonica 'Halliana' (Japanese Honeysuckle) - This selection differs from the species by the divided upper lip of the white flowers (appearing spring through fall) that change to an apricot color with age. It is a very vigorous vine or groundcover that will quickly cover large areas - as much as 30 feet. It benefits from pruning and thinning. Give same growing requirements as the species. It is hardy to USDA Zone 4 and noted as tolerating temperatures as low as -25F. The cultivar name honors George Rogers Hall (1820-1899), an American medical doctor living in Japan. Dr. Hall founded a garden in Yokohama and shipped many plants to the US that were new to cultivation. Lonicera japonica 'Halliana' unfortunately has become a noxious invasive weed in many areas and is now banned in several New England states.  The information on this page is based on our library and online research as well as observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We have also incorporated comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have some additional information, in particular if this information is contrary to what we have written or includes additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Lonicera japonica 'Halliana'.
