Description

Lonicera x ‘Honey Baby’ PBR. This is a compact, yet prolifically flowering honeysuckle which was the result of crossing L. japonica ‘Halliana’ and L. periclymenum ‘Belgica Select’. The fragrant flowers are white-cream and fade to yellow as they mature. The evergreen leaves are dark green.

Cultivation

They are fully hardy to frost tender, with a min of 5C. They are easily grown in sun or light shade, in any fertile, well drained soil. They will need regular pruning to keep them from becoming tangles. You can propagate from seeds in the autumn or spring or from cuttings in summer or late autumn. Prune out flowered wood of climbers after flowering. Prune shrubs only to remove dead shoots or restrain growth.

Interest and use

Grown as a ground-cover honeysuckle, or its scandent habit also works well in containers. Grown for its fragrant, attractive flowers and year-round foliage.
