Lonicera Japonica 'Dart's World'

Lonicera japonica 'Dart's World' is a lovely, strong, semi-evergreen climbing honeysuckle. The heavily scented tubular buds are dark pink held in large groups and the foliage is a very good dark green. The centre of the flowers will fade to a very light pink as they age.

It forms a bushy vigorous climber that just requires light pruning to produce the desired shape and size. It flowers all summer from June and is not fussy about soil type as long as it is moisture retentive but free draining. It is reasonably drought proof and easy to grow.

Great for your garden:

Lonicera japonica 'Dart's World' is a superb semi-evergreen climbing shrub with delightful scented dark pink flowers and good dark green foliage. It is reasonably tolerant of most situations but does prefer to have its roots shaded and flowers in the sun, where the warmth will accentuate the honeysuckle perfume.

Grown near a house or sitting area it will scent the air deliciously. It is excellent for quickly disguising unsightly features, for clothing low walls, tree stumps or outbuildings and is a good food source for bees, butterflies and ladybirds and to provide berries to feed hungry birds in winter.

Lonicera japonica 'Dart's World' characteristics.

  • Strong, bushy, twining semi-evergreen growth
  • Will grow to an eventual height and spread of 4m - 2m
  • Deliciously scented flowers from June
  • Full hardy
  • Dark green leaves
  • Very good for wildlife

Look out for:

Relatively disease free but may suffer from mildew and aphid attacks. Because it provides so much for wildlife, any control used should be biological.

Trivia:

Lonicera japonica is native to Japan and Korea and in China where it is an important plant for use in Chinese medicine. Wherever it grows in its native woodlands it can quickly become invasive, overcoming other plants and killing host trees. This is such a problem that growing the species is illegal in New Zealand and restricted in some states of the US.
