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.

Blooms July–October

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

As Summer draws to a close....

September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter. This time of year may find some landscapes a tad lackluster. When designing your garden, you may wish to include plants that remain perky thoughout the season or experience their heyday now. The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.

Our next guided Saturday Stroll is September 16th., followed by October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
