Masses of highly scented pure white tubular flowers ageing to yellow smother this handsome honeysuckle from April to August giving it a two-tone appearance. The handsome tapered glossy dark green leaves are retained all year so this vigorous variety is ideal for covering a pergola arch or boundary wall or scrambling through robust shrubs and trees. It is happy in sun or partial shade.

  • Garden care: Cut back established plants after flowering removing a third of the flowering shoots. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted compost or manure around the base of the plant in early spring.
