DESCRIPTION & PLANTING:
Trumpet shaped flowers forming a longer corolla, provide a nectar rich pick up for pollinators. Strongest smelling in the early evening, at dusk, these will attract not only bees but other pollinators such as moths. Honeysuckle can be found both in hedgerows and gardens, most likely at its liveliest in full sun. A climber it can co-live very happily with others but may get a little competitive if it likes the conditions. Who could mind such a romping sweetness, flowering between June and September. The honeysuckle, the scent of the summer eve and sunkissed cheeks. Be experimental with companion planting and watch a Lonicera rampage around a Rambling Rector. Perhaps throw in an Apple tree.. or what about a crispy Bay, neat and tidy with a wild Honeysuckle rollocking all over it. How wonderfully disorderly.
The honeysuckle and the bee are longtime friends and in 1901, 'Bluebell in Fairyland' was written with a song to the same name.
