Description
This 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').

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.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
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.
More Info
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.
