Description

Lonicera periclymenum Fragrant Cloud Honeysuckle Plants

Fragrant Cloud is a vigorous, deciduous climbing honeysuckle with upright trumpets of red-pink buds that open to show their white interior that matures nicely to a light coffee colour. The red berries that follow are pretty, but tend to get gobbled by birds before long. The fragrance is strongest in the evening, so bear that in mind when choosing where to plant it.

Very easy to grow, it will rapidly reach about 7m.

Growing Honeysuckle

These versatile plants love a moist but well drained, fertile soil with plenty of sun, but are shade-tolerant and will manage almost anywhere that isn't waterlogged. If your soil is poor and dry, add plenty of compost and mulch well every year after a spring rain. It needs sturdy support or a mature tree to climb up. 

It only needs pruning to keep it within bounds and to remove old, dead and dying growth. 

Planting and Care Instructions

How to grow Lonicera 'Fragrant Cloud':

It is best planted where the roots have a shady run. Apart from that, 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.
