Lonicera periclymenum 'Serotina'

Plant details

A choice variety with large, fragrant flower-heads which are creamy-white, streaked with dark red. The plants are vigorous climbers that twine rapidly up trellis or over arches, where they associate well with climbing roses or other varieties of honeysuckle. They are also superb trained up into trees or covering old tree stumps. Keep under control by pruning bacjk flowered stems by about a third after flowering. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it the Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
