Growing Copper Beauty Honeysuckle

It is deer, rabbit and windproof 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 Lonicera varieties and climbing roses.

Planting and Care Instructions

How to grow Lonicera Copper Beauty

Best planted where the roots have a shady run although it will be happy in any situation and with any soil pH.

  • It is quite loose and spreading in habit so choose a spot where it has room to expand.
  • Plant it in a hole larger than the rootball.
  • Backfill with good quality compost, having incorporated a handful of bonemeal.
  • Firm in well and water.
  • Prune by 1/3rd after flowering and remove any untidy growth.

Look out for:

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.
