Lonicera Japonica 'Henryi'

Lonicera japonica 'Henryi' is an evergreen honeysuckle with trumpets of purplish red trumpet flowers with yellow throats in June and July followed by black berries in the autumn. It will grow in sun or partial shade, is easy to grow and will rapidly reach 10m.

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. It is rabbit and deer resistant.

Browse our variety of honeysuckle or see our full range of climbing plants.

Great for your garden:

Lonicera japonica 'Henryi' makes up for its lack of scent by being probably the most reliable of the evergreen honeysuckles, with beautifully arranged leaves on each stem.

It is deer, rabbit and wind proof and will, therefore, prove perfect for siting in an exposed or woodland position where it could cover a fence or tree stump. It can also be used to cover pergolas, arches and boundary walls. It is a woodland and cottage garden plant not suitable for formal planting. It will associate well with other loniceras and climbing roses.

Lonicera 'Henryi' characteristics.

  • Evergreen, elongated, dark green leaves
  • Lovely purplish red tubular flowers in June and July
  • Will grow to an eventual height and spread of 10m x 2m
  • Full hardy
  • Needs support
  • Sun or partial shade



Look out for:

Lonicera Henryi 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 'Henryi' was introduced into the UK in 1908 from Western China. It was found by Augustine Henry (1857 - 1930) an Irish doctor and botanist who went to China in search of medicinal plants.


Bareroot planting is best done between October and April
