Honeysuckle 'Dropmore Scarlet'
Lonicera x brownii, Scarlet Trumpet HoneysuckleA fiery honeysuckle with long, trumpet-shaped orange-red flowers produced over a long period from July to September. Vigorous and semi-evergreen in all but the coldest winters, Honeysuckle 'Dropmore Scarlet' is superb for rapidly covering unsightly garden features, walls and fences. Although unscented, this robust climber more than makes up for it with its blue-green leaves and abundance of vivid blooms which are often followed by bright red berries. Height: 4m (13'). Spread: 2m (7'). More info
LoniceraA highly unusual honeysuckle with grey-green leaves which resemble a Eucalyptus! This hardy climbing honeysuckle produces fiery flowers in late spring and early summer, in hot shades of red, orange, yellow and purple. The flowers make a striking contrast to the unusual cup-shaped bracts which form a collar around them, and are followed by bright red berries in the autumn. Unlike many Loniceras, Honeysuckle 'Firecracker' is not prone to mildew and has a neat growth habit, which makes it an ideal climber for small spaces. Stunning grown on walls, fences and in woodland gardens, in sun or partial shade. Height: 2m (6.5'). Spread: 1.5m (5').
