More Details

Ideal for a south or south-west facing garden, this will perform well with some support and is less vigorous than other honeysuckles so a good choice to pair with a contrasting clematis or other climber. It has semi-evergreen rounded foliage and brilliant scarlet and orange trumpet flowers. Unscented but produces fabulous red berries which garden birds will enjoy.
