Isn't that a name that just rolls off the tongue? I am never quite sure if Lonicera is Lonny-sarah, or Lo-Nisser-er... but for this shrub, I definitely go for…
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.
Propagation is by seeds in the autumn or spring, by semi-ripe cuttings in summer or by hardwood cuttings in autumn.
