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'–8' high & spreading; hardy to zone 5.

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!
