I planted Major Wheeler Honeysuckle 2 years ago and it has brought hummingbirds to my yard earlier than past years and keeps them coming back. They love it so much they fight over it. I am going to plant 3 more Major Wheelers on different sides of the house this coming fall so they wont have to compete for it next year.
