LONICERA

Commonly known as Honeysuckle

Lots more in this family than the well-known periclymenum, the common one with the most difficult name, especially the underrated nitida which can make neat edging and hedging, Subtle fragrance from the winter flowerers.

Genus of about 180 species of deciduous and evergreen shrubs and twining climbers, widely distributed throughout the northern hemisphere. They are found in varied habitats ranging from woodland and thickets to rocky places.

The native L. periclymenum, woodbine, the epitome of bucolic old England, is most scented at night drawing in night flying moths. A must for any garden with a natural feel.
