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').

"If you want speed, colour and fragrance, choose honeysuckle! Quickly cover unsightly garden features!"
