Buy Lonicera 'Cream Cascade' honeysuckle: An abundance of highly scented flowers

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: June to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Quickly covering an unsightly wall, fence or outbuilding, this vigorous honeysuckle is mainly sought after for its mass of highly scented, summer flowers, which are attractive to pollinating insects. Tough and undemanding, it will often retain it's foliage in milder winters, providing shelter for birds during the colder weather.

  • 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 nipped back when it reaches 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.

  • Humans/Pets: Fruit are ornamental - not to be eaten

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
