Buy Lonicera japonica 'Dart's World' semi-evergreen honeysuckle (syn Lonicera Darts World ): Heavily scented flowers all summer

This climber is semi-evergreen, so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new foliage appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, humus-rich, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: April to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Often producing its highly scented flowers non-stop from late spring to autumn, this fast-growing climber, will usually keep its rich green foliage throughout the winter too - especially if the temperatures do not drop too low. The blooms appear in open clusters, and as they age they change from rich pink to blush, and then creamy yellow, and if planted in a sunny, reasonably sheltered spot, their perfume is divine!

  • Garden care: Newly planted honeysuckles should be cut back by up to two thirds in their first year in early spring. The resulting new growth can then be tied onto a frame, and then nipped back when they reach the desired height. In subsequent years (again in early spring), thin out congested stems, and prune lanky stems back to healthy buds. Every few years, you may want to renovate your plant, and you can do this by cutting it back to around 60cm above the ground. The subsequent mass of growth will need to be thinned and tied on as before. After pruning, apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted compost or manure around the base of the plant.

Honeysuckles - scent for shade

Every garden contains some shady areas and honeysuckles like to have their feet in good soil in shade, before they scramble into the sun. They take up very little ground room and they can climb trees, or drape themselves over walls, or they can be shaped
