Plant Details

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 at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
