Description

An easy-to-grow and fast establishing honeysuckle with pale creamy yellow flowers with a fabulous evening scent. Grows well with other honeysuckles and climbing roses and will happily scramble over low walls, arches or pergolas. A mecca for pollinators with its abundance of nectar in summer, then in winter, while the berries are an important food source for hungry birds.

Care Tips

Plant slightly away from a wall or fence line where it will receive rainfall. Mulch in autumn. Cut back established plants after flowering if they outgrow the available space, removing up to a third of the flowering shoots.
