Lonicera similis delavayi

This evergreen climber looks similar to Lonicera japonica but is larger in all its parts and the leaves are more leathery. The long fragrant white to pale yellow flowers are carried in pairs in the leaf axils mostly bunched up near the shoot tips from late summer right through Autumn. Plant out of cold winds. Lonicera similis delavayi is  less problem prone than some of the other Lonicera species. Hardy in all but the coldest parts of the UK. This is a stunning honeysuckle. Introduced from Western China in 1901
