Lonicera × tellmanniana

For sale by Bluebell Nursery

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

A lovely and unusual climbing honeysuckle, Lonicera x tellmanniana has masses of rich coppery-yellow flowers in terminal clusters in mid summer.

Excellent as part of a 'hot' border and ideal against a sunny wall or fence, it is also very pretty if allowed to climb up and cover an old tree trunk. This honeysuckle will also grow in some shade, although generally with slightly fewer flowers.

Supplied Size: 3L deep containers (40 - 60 cm tall)
