Buy Lonicera × purpusii 'Winter Beauty' winter honeysuckle: Fantastic fragrance during the winter

This shrub 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: average
  • Flowering period: December to March
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Clusters of white, tubular flowers with prominent yellow anthers cling to bare branches in the depths or winter and fill the air with a heady fragrance. The scent from this deciduous or semi-evergreen shrub will stop you in your tracks. An invaluable addition to the garden in winter, it is best planted near a path or in a front garden, where its delicious fragrance can be appreciated. Once the bright green leaves appear, this honeysuckle looks rather insignificant, so plant it among shrubs that provide interest over the summer months.

  • Garden care: Cut back established plants after flowering, 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.

Heroine of the winter garden

5

I LOVE these! They have the most delicate little flowers - graceful and understated. The plants grow well, and after a few years need a tame or two. In the right spot, new shoots often get to 3ft by pruning time! For me they are the unsung heroines of a winter garden. Delicate flowers when all else is bare or evergreen. They are also wonderful for the early bees and butterflies. Cannot recommend enough.

This plant doesn't seem to have thrived in my garden, it might be the position, it hasn't grown very much.
