'Winter Beauty' is one of the best of the winter flowering shrubby honeysuckle, with sweetly fragrant creamy white flowers that appear in late winter and early spring. It makes an attractive spreading deciduous shrub that will fill the spring garden with its rich scent. Plants look better without pruning, and so should be allowed plenty of room to develop. They tolerate shade, but they flower best in full sun. It can also be trained against a wall.
