Description

A new, quite compact form of ruby-flowered, deliciously scented honeysuckle with an extended flowering season.

It's quick growing too. I love to pick this for a vase by my bed.

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.
