Lonicera Serotina

Lonicera periclymenum Serotina is a vigorous, deciduous honeysuckle with trumpets of purplish red trumpet flowers with yellow streaks from July to October followed by red berries in the autumn. It will grow in sun or partial shade, is easy to grow and will rapidly reach 8m.

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.
