Lonicera periclymenum ‘Belgica’ full sun  partial shade

Heralding summer, this vigorous sweetly perfumed twiner blooms earlier than most Honeysuckles and is set apart by tubular flowers, whose interiors change color as they mature amid semideciduous green oval leaves. Sprightly deep pink clusters of long slender curling buds open into large crimson bugles with creamy white centers, which later showcase bright yellow and red shades.

Especially fragrant at the end of the day and grateful for fertile soil, easily grown ‘Belgica’ can be pruned to develop a shrubby habit or be encouraged to ramble up walls, trellises, pillars, the branches of large shrubs or a Cercidiphyllum. Medium Band.

Blooms May – August.

Size: 6' 0"–8' 0" high & spreading; hardy to zone 5.

Our fall arrangement includes: Asters Hydrangeas Miscanthus Molinias Persicarias Salvias Verbenas

I wanted this arrangement to celebrate the diverse beauty that autumn affords. It was photographed by acclaimed garden photographer, Saxon Holt, who happened to be visiting us.

Autumnal Fanfare: Lambent Leaves, Glistening Berries, Fleeting Flowers, last chance for Fantastic Fall Sale, Gift Certificates now on sale!

Here at Digging Dog, we’ve had some welcome rain to actually soak the soil. With the onset of shorter days and chilly nights, a quieter contemplative mood envelopes parts of the garden. As many herbaceous plants are fading into dormancy, evergreen shrubs, bold-toned leaves, textural seed-heads plus plump glistening berries take center stage. The impressive group of plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye when I strolled through the nursery and garden yesterday. I hope you enjoy these compelling autumnal offerings. In many locales throughout the country, there’s still time to tuck some botanical gems into an empty garden nook.

Customer Comment:

“I held my breath and opened the box (after a long delay in opening the delivered plants, due to catastrophic flooding), dug down through the damp paper shreds and found all the plants alive!!!! I'm so relieved. I had to write and thank you for the hardiness of the plants, and for packing them so carefully.... Thank you, Digging Dog. I'll be back.”
