Lonicera 'Honeybelle' (Large Plant)

Lonicera brownii, Scarlet Trumpet Honeysuckle

Hardy Shrub

A particularly hardy climbing honeysuckle, producing masses of lightly fragrant, apricot yellow blooms. Lonicera 'Honeybelle' repeat flowers throughout the season giving a fabulous display from late June right through to early autumn. The flowers are followed by a peppering of glossy red berries. This attractive cultivar of Lonicera x brownii has a vigorous habit that lends itself well to twining over arbours, pergolas and trellis. Height: 4m (12'). Spread: 2m (6').

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Plant honeysuckle against a suitable, sturdy support such as trellis or strong wires attached to walls and pergolas, in fertile, moist, free draining soil. Poor soils can be improved by adding plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost. Choose a position in sun or semi-shade. When growing honeysuckle in patio containers, use soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3.
Feed and water lonicera regularly throughout the growing season until they are fully established. Check young shoot tips regularly as honeysuckle plants are susceptible to aphid damage, particularly when grown in full sun. Prune immediately after flowering, first removing the oldest stems, then reducing the remaining stems to restrict their vigorous growth to the available space. Apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost to the base of the plant in spring. Caution: Harmful if eaten.
