Lonicera 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 will grow in sun or partial shade but the scent is at its best in full sun, particularly in the evening. It is easy to grow and will rapidly reach 6m. The individual flowers are trumpets held in cartwheel shaped flowerheads.



It prefers to have its roots moist but is happy in most soils as long as it has good drainage. It only needs pruning to keep it within bounds and to remove old, dead and dying growth. It provides nectar for bees, butterflies and ladybirds and berries in autumn for hungry birds.

Great for your garden:

Lonicera periclymenum 'Graham Thomas'is very 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 pollinators, principally moths. This is, essentially, a cottage garden plant growing in hedgerows and woodland in the wild, and is particularly suited to informal planting schemes

Lonicera periclymenum 'Graham Thomas' characteristics.

  • Bushy deciduous mid-green foliage
  • Lovely cream to yellow trumpet flowers from July to September
  • Will grow to an eventual height and spread of 6m x 2m
  • Lovely strong perfume
  • Full hardy
  • Needs support
  • Sun or partial shade
  • RHS Award of Garden Merit


  • Look out for:

    Lonicera periclymenum 'Graham Thomas' may be susceptible to mildew and aphids but it rarely causes a severe problem. Because of the plants attraction for insects and bees it is inadvisable to use chemical sprays.


    Trivia:

    Lonicera varieties, named after the 16th century German botanist, Adam Lonicer, vary enormously. Native to the northern hemisphere, they are all hardy and vigorous climbers and, considering the habit of our native Woodbine, suit cottage garden situations. Periclymenum translates as 'twist around' referring to the twining habit of the stems.
