It has delectable, even intoxicating, fragrance, sumptuous 4cm tubular flowers of deep pink with a touch of purple, the tips curl back to reveal a creamy satin interior which fades to a soft gold. – giving it a multi coloured display. A mature plant has a profusion of flowers in early summer with some produced through to mid autumn. A compact slow growing non-invasive deciduous honeysuckle, it’s easy and adaptable from sun to shade. It flowers best in a lightly shaded spot.
