The superb fragrant flowers of the shrubby honeysuckle Lonicera 'Winter Beauty' are a real treat in the depths of winter. Delicate 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").

Culinary information: 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. A tea can also be made from the leaves, buds and flowers. For more details about edible flowers click here.

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.
