Perfect for adding garden elegance, Blue leaf Honeysuckle ‘Floribunda’ is a gently arching shrub with a long flowering season. The fragrant, rose pink blooms are plentiful from late spring and remain strong through to Summer. The blooms are followed by ornamental red berries that the birds love.

Lonicera ‘Floribunda’ is an excellent specimen plant. It can also be used as part of a shrub, border or for hedging.

The foliage, as the name of Blue Leaf Honeysuckle suggests, is green with a strong blue tint. It makes a nice contrast to the general garden green.

Plant Honeysuckle ‘Floribunda’ in full sun to semi shade. Choose a moderately fertile to humus rich, well drained soil. Water to establish, then only if rainfall is low, they are dry tolerant once established. Cutting back the flowered stems, after the berries have finished, will help to maintain a healthy specimen.

NB this is not a twining Honeysuckle.
