Lonicera periclymenum 'Graham Thomas'

Description:

A vigorous deciduous climber ideal for covering a boundary wall or fence in a sunny site.

Lonicera 'Graham Thomas' is a creamy yellow form of our British native honeysuckle found in light woodland and hedgerows. The fabulous highly scented flowers are freely produced over a long period from July to September and are pollinated by moths. The red berries that follow in the autumn are popular with feeding birds.

Climate/Position: Full sun or partial shade

Height/Spread: Up to 8 metres

Soil Requirements: Fertile, humus-rich, moist, well-drained soil

Pruning: Cut back established plants after flowering by removing a third of the flowering shoots.

Special Requirements: Applying a mulch of well-rotted compost or manure around the base of the plant in early spring is beneficial.

This honeysuckle is named after the great gardener and nurseryman Graham Stewart Thomas.
