Honeysuckle 'Winter Beauty' (Large Plant)

Lonicera × purpusii

Hardy Shrub

You can guarantee winter colour in your garden with this unique Lonicera, related to the Common Honeysuckle. 'Winter Beauty' is a rounded, bushy shrub, which is fully hardy, easy to maintain and features thousands of tiny blooms, each with a potent fragrance.

Lonicera 'Winter Beauty' is a neat shrub, which can easily fill a gap in your flower border. Plants are deciduous, however once the leaves have fallen, the creamy-white, 15mm blooms appear, in sprays and with a heavy perfume. The sight of those pretty blooms on the bare branches is very attractive, and will last from winter to spring. Height: 2m (6',5"). Spread 250cm (8').


Culinary note: The parboiled leaves are used as a vegetable and the flowers can be sucked for their sweet nectar, used as a vegetable or made into a syrup and pudding. A tea can also be made from the leaves, buds and flowers. For more details about edible flowers click here.
