Lonicera periclymenum 'Serotina'

Plant details

Lonicera periclymenum is a shrubby climber, bearing fragrant, tubular white flowers, which mature to yellow, from July to September.  It will quickly cover a wall or fence, and is a magnet for garden wildlife. It makes a fabulous planting companion for roses.

Lonicera periclymenum 'Serotina' bears large, fragrant creamy-white flowers streaked with dark red. It's a vigorous climber that will quickly cover a trellis or arch, where it associates well with climbing roses or other varieties of honeysuckle.

For best results plant Lonicera periclymenum 'Serotina' in moist but well-drained soil. Honeysuckle can be prone to mildew – to prevent this grow up a north-facing wall or fence so the roots are kept in the shade but the foliage can grow into the sun.
