Lonicera periclymenum Graham Thomas

Lonicera periclymenum Graham Thomas is a lovely pale cream to lemon yellow fragrant honeysuckle with ovate, mid green leaves and twining stems. It is easy to grow and will rapidly reach 6m. The individual flowers are trumpets held in cartwheel shaped flowerheads. It attracts bees, butterflies and ladybirds, and red berries in autumn for hungry birds.

Good for any number of situations, scrambling over low walls, over arches and pergolas or into trees. It associates very well with other honeysuckles and climbing roses and should be grown in any position where the fragrance can be enjoyed.

The scent is best in the evening when it needs to attract the moths that are its main pollinators. It is a classic cottage garden plant, growing in hedgerows and woodland in the wild, and is particularly suited to informal planting schemes

Growing Graham Thomas Honeysuckle

It prefers to have its roots moist but is happy in most soils as long as it has good drainage. It will grow in sun or partial shade, but the scent is at its best in full sun. 

It only needs pruning right after flowering to keep it within bounds and to remove old, dead and dying growth. 

Did You Know?

Native to the British Isles and much of the Northern Hemisphere, this variety was a chance discovery, found in 1960 growing in a hedge in Warwickshire. It is named for Graham Stuart Thomas (1909-2003), one of the great British horticulturalists of the 20th century. 

Periclymenum translates as 'twist around' referring to the twining habit of the stems.
