Lonicera

Lonicera x ‘Novosa (Honey Baby) ™’ full sun  partial shade

Aptly named and well-worth the wait, this compact highly perfumed cross is the prized outcome of a 10 year breeding program by the Netherlands’ Boskoop Horticultural Research Center. Climbing branches with somewhat rounded, shiny dark green foliage comprise the easily managed bushy growth that boasts a bevy of purplish red buds and clustered tubular blooms, first opening a creamy yellow then darkening to a lovely orange-yellow. An award winning cross between Lonicera japonica ‘Halliana’ and Lonicera periclymenum ‘Belgica Select’, ‘Honey Baby’s dwarf evergreen habit can grace a container, an outdoor living space or a smaller garden, while its delectable smelling flowers unfurl from summer ‘til fall.

Size: 4' 0"–6' 0" high & spreading; hardy to zone 4.
