Buy Lonicera henryi 'Copper Beauty' (PBR) honeysuckle: A striking new cultivar

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: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: June to July
  • Hardiness: borderline hardy (may need winter protection)

    The new foliage of this evergreen, twining climber emerge a distinctive bronze colour, but gradually fade to green as they age. From early summer the yellow flowers start to appear, these contrasting beautifully with the colourful foliage.

  • 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.

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.

I have planted this in April and it started to grow well but it now seems to be putting all of it's energy into just one single vine which is making its way across the wall while rest of it seems to have stopped growing. It is now flowering at the base. Is it ok to prune this or should I wait ?

Hello, Ideally these should be pruned in early spring, but if you have one particularly vigorous shoot and no fresh basal growth, then I would be tempted to snip it back now.

Hello! Could I plant this in a large tub? Which other honeysuckles could be grown in a tub? Thank you.

Hello, The best honeysuckle for a pot is the new one 'Rhubarb and Custard' as it is relatively compact. Please click on the following link to go straight to it. http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/lonicera-periclymenum-rhubarb-and-custard/classid.2000020958/
