Information
Often known as the Early Dutch Honeysuckle, Lonicera periclymenum Belgica has purply-red buds which open to reveal a creamy-yellow throat and are highly fragrant. A classic cottage garden plant that benefits from a free draining soil condition to do best.
Lovely when grown through a white clematis montana as its companion.

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.
