Lonicera periclymenum 'Belgica'

Early Dutch honeysuckle, unfortunately there are hundreds of plants which all rejoice in this name, The plant I have matches the expected description i.e. Reddy purple and yellow highly scented flowers in whorls at the shoot ends, May June and sporadically though the rest of the summer. Does best in cool shaded locations that do not dry out. Lonicera periclymenum 'Belgica' has been known in cultivation since the 1600's and still takes a lot of beating for reliability and scent over a long period in summer.
