Lonicera ‘Dropmore Scarlet’ (Trumpet Honeysuckle) 2L Pot, 4 Canes
€9.99 “Price excl. VAT: €8.80”
This honeysuckle has a real wow factor, with long, trumpet-shaped, vivid scarlet flowers from July to September, followed in hot summers by small red berries. Although it is unscented (or with just a faint hint of perfume), the flower colour more than makes up for the lack of fragrance, and its handsome, semi-evergreen (or deciduous in colder winters) blue-green leaves provide valuable cover for a pergola or boundary wall. An unusual climber for a cottage-style garden.
Cut back established plants after flowering, removing a third of the flowering shoots. Apply a generous 5-7cm mulch of well-rotted compost or manure around the base of the plant in early spring.
Supplied in a 2 litre pot, 4 canes
