Key Information:  Product Code: NEWHCDW

Name: Evergreen Climbing Plants - Honeysuckle Lonicera japonica 'Darts World'- SCENTED FLOWERS. HARDY. ONE OF THE BEST NEW ALL-ROUND CLIMBING PLANTS INTRODUCED!

Description: A NEW introduction, this easy to grow particularly HARDY evergreen climbing plant, with a bushy spreading habit, has dark green leaves and very fragrant, flashy red flushed flowers which mature to peach and yellow shades. Just the sound of the word 'honeysuckle' is pleasant - it brings to mind warm summer evenings with drifting sweet scents and the sounds of bumble bees busying themselves sipping nectar! The flowers which have a strong perfume adorn the vine from spring through to late summer. This evergreen climbing plant is fully hardy and can be grown in a variety of positions and is nearly indestructible! Commonly grown along a trellis, fence or other framework, this honeysuckle can also be grown to give ground cover. Grows in any well-dained soil or compost, and can be planted in sun or partial shade. Ancient folklore believes that if a honeysuckle climbing plant grows around the entrance to the home it prevents goblins and witches from entering, and is said to bring good fortune. In many parts of the world honeysuckles have often been a symbol of affection and devotion. In Victorian times, however, young ladies were forbidden from selecting honeysuckles to use as cut flowers because they were considered to have too luscioius a scent which would cause them to have dreams which were far too risqué!
