Honeysuckle 'Scentsation' (Large Plant)
Lonicera periclymenum, Common Honeysuckle, WoodbineThis delightful deciduous Woodbine bears showy, pale yellow and ivory blooms from midsummer to September, with a powerful sweet perfume. Glossy scarlet berries take centre stage as the scented flowers fade, providing plenty of late summer interest, and food for wild birds. Honeysuckle periclymenum 'Scentsation' makes a wonderful addition to cottage gardens. Let it climb walls and fences, or train it over pergolas and doorways where its fragrance can be really appreciated. Height: 7m (22'). Spread: 1m (3'). 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').
