Lonicera periclymenum is a native 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.
For best results plant Lonicera periclymenum 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.
