Comments about Crocus Lonicera henryi'Copper Beauty (PBR)':
Was delighted to receive my 3 lonicera honeysuckle copper beauty's today, only 2 days after ordering on sunday! Excellent leadtime. Very impressed with the careful packaging of them.
I will be using them as an attractive evergreen climber against bare trellis and trellis that has some ivy on. I picked them as they are beneficial to wildlife, and this is my primary consideration.
I am really pleased with the height and size of them (approx 70+ cm), as they will make an immediate impact.
Will definitely be using Crocus again.

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 shapedRead full article
