Buy Lonicera periclymenum 'Scentsation' (PBR) honeysuckle: Deliciously sweet and strong perfume.

This climber is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

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

    Good-sized clusters of cream and yellow flowers, which have a deliciously sweet (and strong) perfume, will fill the garden with colour and scent. It's a fast grower, but more compact than the species, so ideal for smaller gardens where it can be used to smother an eyesore quickly - while helping to attract beneficial pollinators. The bright red berries that form after the flowers are also attractive and will add a bright splash of colour.

  • Garden care: Cut back established plants after flowering if they become too rampant, removing a third of the flowering shoots. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted compost or manure around the base of the plant in early spring.

can this plant be planted in august?

Yes, provided you make sure it is kept well watered, there is no reason why it cant go in the ground now.

Hi, can this be transferred from pot to ground in January? If so, what's needed to protect it from the cold etc? Thanks!

Hello This honeysuckle is fully hardy so can be planted out now as long as the ground isn't frozen or waterlogged. If this isn't possible you can still keep it in the garden, in a sheltered spot where it won't be blown over, and it will be fine until you can plant. As it is fully hardy it doesn't need any extra protection from the cold.

Hello, is honeysuckle scentsation an evergreen plant please? I have a small walled garden and would like a honeysuckle that can be controlled but provides wall coverage all year round to cover an unsightly area of wall. If evergreen I think this plant would be ideal. Thanks

Hello, No, this is a deciduous climber.
