Lonicera x tellmanniana

This honeysuckle vine is a hybrid of our native Coral Honeysuckle (Lonicera sempervirens) and the Chinese L. tragophylla. Hillier (Manual of Trees and Shrubs) calls it "A superb hybrid".  It has large bluish leaves and bright coppery orange tubular flowers flushed red in bud and borne in large terminal clusters in summer.  Best in semi-shade.  Apparently originated at the Royal Hungarian Horticultural School in Budapest in the 1920's.
