Description

Like the best William Morris wallpaper, this crimson, ruby and apricot honeysuckle looks and smells utterly delicious from late spring. It’s hugely abundant and resilient plant which will be in your life and nostrils for ever.

Care Tips

Cut back established plants after flowering if they outgrow the available space, removing up to a third of the flowering shoots. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted compost or manure around the base of the plant in spring or autumn.
