Does anyone have any experience growing trumpet honeysuckle from a container? I'm looking for a fast-growing vine that will cover a wire fence and ideally stay green in the winter. It seems like trumpet honeysuckle fits this description but I'm not seeing much information about this plant that is specific to container growing. Any info or other vine suggestions are much appreciated!
I grow a L. periclymenum in a large container. I use Al's mix and knock the whole vine out of the container every year, root prune, and replace with some new soil. I probably replace 1/3 to 1/2 of the soil volume. It's variegated, so not as large and vigorous as other honeysuckles.
It is supposed to be, but it dies down to 6" or even the soil and resprouts from the roots. I find that the sprouts from the roots contain more reversions that need pruned off, but that won't be a factor for your plant. HTH!
