Common Name: Japanese honeysuckle

Flowering period: May to September
The early Dutch honeysuckle has large cartwheel-shaped flower-heads made up of rings of curved, almost tubular individual flowers. These deepen in colour slightly as the flowers age, so the plants have white, cream and yellow flowers open at the same time. The plants are vigorous twiners that climb rapidly up trellis or over arches, where they associate well with climbing roses or other varieties of honeysuckle, offering a good way to extend the flowering season. They are also superb trained up into trees or covering old tree stumps.
Looks good with:Clematis 'Anna Louise'
