Distinguishing traits: Small tubular yellow flowers are backed by silver dollar-like round bracts reminiscent of Eucalyptus.
How to use it: Plant Kintzley’s Ghost honeysuckle where you can enjoy its ghostly white color in the low evening light. A single specimen makes a stunning vertical accent plant, or plant several as a screen. As a twining-type vine, it will grow best on a support structure with small-diameter components such as lattice, chain link, wrought iron, etc.
Create a dynamic companion planting by contrasting Kintzley’s Ghost honeysuckle with finely textured plants that have rich green foliage. Consider ornamental grasses, asters, tickseed (Coreopsis spp), and perennial geraniums (Geranium spp). Other options include woody shrubs such as alpine currant (Ribes alpinum), zones 2-6; Cheyenne mock orange (Philadelphus lewisii ‘Cheyenne’), zones 3-9; and North Star spruce (Picea glauca ‘North Star’), zone 3.
