Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
    The dark, semi-evergreen foliage of Lonicera similis var. delavayi makes the perfect backdrop for its richly perfumed, late summer blooms. The twining stems bear whorls of creamy-white tubular flowers that gradually mature to yellow, creating an attractive two tone effect. By Autumn the flowers give way to glossy black berries. Unlike many varieties, Delavays honeysuckle is less prone to mildew which can ruin the summer foliage of many Lonicera. This fabulous hardy climber makes a lovely addition to walls, fences, arches and pergolas to give year round interest in your garden. Height: 8m (26'). Spread: 2m (7').

    Flowering Months
    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: Berries are harmful if eaten.
    Pot up lonicera plants and grow them on until large enough to plant out in their final positions. When they are well grown, gradually acclimatise plants to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days. 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.
