Delic.ate creamy white blooms appear in clusters on bare stems and fill the air with their heady perfume. This spreading cousin of the well loved climbing honeysuckles makes an excellent border shrub, and its flowering stems may also be used as short lived cut flowers. Height: 2m (78"). Spread: 2.5m (98").

Plant shrubby honeysuckle in borders in any moist well drained soil. Position in a sunny or semi shaded site. Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season while young plants become established.
Winter flowering Honeysuckle plants can be pruned immediately after flowering. Prune back flowered stems to a pair of strong buds or vigorous younger growth and reduce remaining stems to restrict the shrub to the space available. In autumn apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant.
