Lonicera periclymenum Serotina

Lonicera

Honeysuckle

Grateful for fertile soil, our easy-to-grow Lonicera are hardy and long-lived. They possess smooth-edged opposite leaves and entertain an abundance of showy, whorled blooms.

Samuel Pepys called it the trumpet flower and wrote, “The bugles blow scent instead of sound.” ‘Serotina’ bears multitudes of spidery-looking, fuchsia-colored buds, which open into pink, sweet-smelling bugles that later fade to a creamy salmon color. You can prune this vigorous semideciduous vine to make it more shrublike or let its bluish green foliage climb into the branches of a Cercidiphyllum.

Blooms June–September.

Size: 6'–8' high x 4' wide; hardy to zone 6.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
