Lonicera Japonica Chinensis Lonicera Japonica Chinensis is a fragrant, fast-growing honeysuckle that covers a pergola or trellis with flowers in the summer. This pretty semi-evergreen climber is also called Japanese Honeysuckle as it originates from the Far East. It has attractive purple twining stems and very dark green foliage that is reddish on the underside and remains on the plant in mild winters. Stems grow quickly and from July to October the whole climber is covered in whitish-yellow flowers with purple trumpets that mature in dark purple fruits. The fragrance of this honeysuckle is a knockout. It’s one of the strongest honeysuckle scents and it attracts pollinators until the blooms fall in late autumn. In winter the large leaves may remain in place on a framework of dark purple climbing stems.
Height And Spread of Lonicera Japonica Chinensis Japanese Honeysuckle can easily reach heights of five metres by three metres in fertile soil, but can be kept smaller with pruning.
How Hardy Is Lonicera Japonica Chinensis Japanese Honeysuckle is frost hardy and can withstand frosts and freezing temperature of harsh winters. In mid to southern areas of the UK, or in a sheltered spot in northerly areas, it is likely to retain its foliage.
How To Use Lonicera Japonica Chinensis Japanese Honeysuckle is a good choice to cover a dead tree or an outbuilding as it grows very quickly. Use this fragrant honeysuckle to cover an archway, a pergola, a wire trellis on the fence, or a freestanding obelisk in a container on the patio. It’s a perfect choice for gardeners that want to attract pollinators as its free-flowering fragrant blooms are attractive to bees. If you have a kitchen garden, planting honeysuckle nearby is beneficial for pollination.
How to Care For Lonicera Japonica Chinensis Give Japanese Honeysuckle plenty of room to grow in fertile well-drained soil of any type. Honeysuckles prefer a sunny to a partially shady spot and will flower best in plenty of sunshine. Water well until established and give water during hot spells. Don’t allow container-grown honeysuckle to dry out. As the stems grow, tie them in and prune to a manageable size in late winter.
