Honey Baby® Honeysuckle, Woodbine

Lonicera 'Novso' PPAF

Caprifoliaceae

Honey Baby® Honeysuckle, Woodbine

Large clusters of tubular buds open to show off the fragrant, widely flaring, white tubular flowers that mature through primrose to deep yellow.Honey Baby® Honeysuckle was selected for its compact and shrub-like habit as well as its ability to repeat flower in summer. The flowers attract a variety of pollinators including hummingbirds, butterflies, and larger bees and would most likely attract hummingbird moths as well. Small enough for containers and small trellises and short fences. 

Most fragrant honeysuckles are most intensely fragrant in the late afternoon and evening.

Removal of seed clusters will help to promote repeat flowering and this is true of most Honeysuckles that may produce fruit.
