Plant Overview

The winter flowering, shrubby honeysuckle with very fragrant cream flowers that offer rare interest in the winter garden and bring the scent of midsummer into the coldest of days.

A shrub honeysuckle which produces its flowers on the bare wood in from December to April to enchant and enliven the senses on the dullest of mid-winter days. Good scent.

The small, cream-coloured flowers first appear among the largely evergreen leaves in early to mid-December, and often last well into April. ‘Winter Beauty’ will form a large bush in time, with a height and spread of 2-3m, but can be confined to a smaller size by judicious pruning in late spring.

Plant near a path to take full advantage of the scent.

First recorded in 1923 by Alfred Rehder.

Height: 6'

Common name(s): Winter flowering honeysuckle

All our plants are supplied in 9cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant.
The majority of our plants are grown outdoors. This means that they follow their natural growth patterns and are ready to plant at any time of the year. If you order the plants in winter, they are likely to be dormant and died back to ground level, ready to shoot again in spring - just like the herbaceous perennials in your own garden. Very occasionally, in winter, we may indicate on the packing slip that a plant needs to be hardened off before planting out. This will be because it has just come out of a polytunnel. If you have any questions about our plants or growing methods, please feel free to drop us an email.
We grow most of what we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside. Our prices include VAT at 20%.
