Although the flowers are smaller and less conspicuous than those of many other honeysuckles including the well known woodbines, this species has two big advantages a long flowering season and evergreen foliage. The flowers are sweetly-scented, small, two-lobed, and open white but fade to yellow so the same plant has both colours visible at the same time. Plants carry a sprinkling of flowers continuously from late spring until late summer. This is a good plant for combining with clematis, or for a wild garden. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

This is very confusing - is this deciduous or evergreen. It says it is both!
I have a honey suckle like above but its not a evergreen.I have had a trial to get it to grow in my clay soil.In my last but one house it grew lovely lots of flowers but the soil was lighter .Its lovely and fragrant when you do get it going with lovely red berries in winter.Ill keep trying.
My honeysuckle is listed as evergreen but has just started losing leaves after them turning yellow? Rather confused.
