Cultivation Advice.

Deciduous, sometimes evergreen, climbing honeysuckles (Lonicera) have thin, flexible stems that twine around their supports. Grow them up walls and fences, or over a pergola to scent the air near a seating area. Although they will flower better in a sunny place, a lightly shaded position will encourage a healthier, greener plant. Climbing honeysuckles will thrive on almost any soil type. Very wet or excessively dry soils are unsuitable. Strong sunlight can scorch the growth.
