Honeysuckle vines offer sensational, easy care flowers with a wonderful fragrance. Honeysuckle 'Gold Flame' holds the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit so you know it has been put through its paces and will look good in the garden.

Each floret is around 5cm long in deep, rose pink shades that that open to a warm gold. Beneficial insects and birds love these flowers. In the right conditions, the flowers are followed by ornamental red berries that the birds can enjoy.

This cultivar has a more intense colouring than the common form and has nice vigour. You can remove spent flowers to encourage more blooms. The leaves are deep green, with a blue-green reverse.

Quick to establish and grow. The branches are not self twining, so you will need to tie them to their support. The good news is you will be able to choose their path.

You could choose to prune Honeysuckle 'Gold Flame' into a small shrub, or take the easy route and let the twining stems ramble through trees or shrubs, along walls or fences, through pergolas or trellises, or wherever needs decorating.

Plant Honeysuckle 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. BA winter prune will keep them bushy and vital.

In cold climates it may be deciduous, the leaves will turn yellow before falling in winter. It will quickly reshoot as the weather warms. The berries are more likely to form with warmer weather.
