Lonicera periclymenum 'Belgica', also known as early Dutch Honeysuckle is an exceptionally pretty deciduous climber with large white and pink/red flushed flowers from late spring into summer which are followed on by small red berries.
The long tubular flowers are produced in circular clusters off a central bud and are initially slim and curved upwards until opening, when each individual petal curls back exposing the long stamens. The flowers are highly fragrant as well as bright and attractive and the white interior turns sunny yellow as the season progresses. The paired ovate leaves are a deep green with a slight blue tinge underneath.
Lonicera 'Belgica' is a fairly vigorous climber so will cover a wall, trellis, fence, pergola or any other type of framework very easily. It is a natural twining climber so will cling to structures without much assistance. Its heady floral scent is strongest later in the day or evening so to make the most of this, plant where the fragrance can be enjoyed to maximum effect, perhaps near to a window, door or seating area.
Plant your Lonicera 'Belgica' in a partly shaded position for the best growth although it will also tolerate full sun, and in any well-drained but moist soil. This is a low maintenance shrub where any pruning required is minimal but should a tidy up be needed, lightly prune immediately after flowering.
