  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, humus-rich, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The foliage of this recently introduced honeysuckle emerges purple in spring, but matures to a rich green, so by summer when the unscented cream and yellow flowers appear, it forms a lush, verdant backdrop. It is relatively compact too, so a better option for smaller gardens, or where space is at a premium.

  • 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.
