Trumpet honeysuckle, also called coral honeysuckle, will grow in some shade, but best flowering is in full sun. This is a twining vine that needs a support structure upon which to grow unless allowed to sprawl as a ground cover. After a first flush of flowers in the spring, it will flower intermittently until frost with both flowers and fruit present together.
Prune as needed immediately after flowering.
Trumpet honeysuckle may have aphids. Hose off the aphids then snip off damaged new growth and buds.
Trumpet honeysuckle tolerates black walnuts.
