Lonicera periclymenum 'Heaven Scent'

Float away to the heavens with this gloriously perfumed honeysuckle, which has white and pale yellow, very fragrant flowers that open from pink buds. Like most honeysuckle, it is vigorous and easy to grow, and popular with bees, butterflies and ladybirds. The decorative red berries in autumn attract 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.

Growing 'Heaven Scent' 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.

In Your Garden Design

It is a classic cottage garden plant, growing in hedgerows and woodland in the wild, and is particularly suited to informal planting schemes. Grow near where you are going to sit in the evening, close to a window, or by a path so you can enjoy its divine perfume. Go for broke with scent and pair with with classic cottage plants such as sweet peas and wallflowers, and shrubs, such as roses, daphne and myrtle. It would spectacular on an archway fronted by lupin masterpiece and absolutely fabulous with an absolutely fabulous rose.

Did You Know?

'Heaven Scent' is a pretty obvious pun, and a fair number of plants have claimed the name, including a Magnolia, a Polemonium, a Gardenia, a rose ('Scent from Heaven'), and a sweet pea.

Periclymenum translates as 'twist around' referring to the twining habit of the stems. It is a fact made famous by Misalliance, a Flanders & Swann song recorded in 1957, that whereas honeysuckle "spirals clockwise towards the sun", bindweed climbs anti-clockwise. Go and have a look!
