This evergreen honeysuckle has large clusters of tubular, scented flowers, purple, red and yellow-red in colour, produced in early to mid summer. Leaves are lance-shaped and dark green, retained all year round.
Suitable for full sun to medium shade. Tolerates all soil conditions, except extremely dry. Hardy.
Tie to support. Three years after planting, remove one in three of the shoots near to ground level after flowering, choosing the oldest. This will in turn maintain a good display of flowers.
Use on walls, fences, trellis, pergolas, pillars or grow through large shrubs.
