Lonicera x Purpusii 'Winter Beauty' (Winter Honeysuckle)


Lonicera x Purpusii 'Winter Beauty' (Winter Honeysuckle)

Fantastic fragrance during the winter


Clusters of white, tubular flowers with prominent yellow anthers cling to bare branches in the depths or winter and fill the air with a heady fragrance. The scent from this deciduous or semi-evergreen shrub will stop you in your tracks. An invaluable addition to the garden in winter, it is best planted near a path or in a front garden, where its delicious fragrance can be appreciated. Once the bright green leaves appear, this honeysuckle looks rather insignificant, so plant it among shrubs that provide interest over the summer months.
