Well-loved for its sweet-scented flowers, this vigorous climbing honeysuckle will cover fences and walls, and even twine through tree canopies. Its white flowers gradually turn yellow with rich red streaks followed by red berries. Flowering mainly in early summer, Lonicera periclymenum 'Belgica' may produce another flush of heavenly scented blooms in September and October. Height: 700cm (22’) Spread: 180cm (6’).

Culinary note: The parboiled leaves are used as a vegetable and the flowers can be sucked for their sweet nectar, used as a vegetable or made into a syrup and pudding.

Grow honeysuckle in sunny or semi shaded sites in any moist, well drained soil. Prior to planting add plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost to the soil. Be sure to provide the twining stems with an appropriate support, such as trellis or wires attached to fences and pergolas. Alternatively grow honeysuckle through shrubs and trees.
Feed and water regularly until fully established. In autumn or spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost to the base of the plant. Pruning honeysuckle is best undertaken in summer, immediately after flowering. Remove any damaged or dead stems entirely. The remaining stems can then be pruned back to a pair of healthy buds.
