Lonicera periclymenum ’Caprilia Imperial’ is a newly introduced, compact honeysuckle reaching just 1.5-2m (5-6.5ft) and ideal for smaller gardens and patio pots where its large, bicoloured blooms will fill your garden with the most amazing fragrance.
This Imperial Honeysuckle will bring everything that you want in a climbing plant for your garden: stunning flowers, sweet, exquisite fragrance and robust, heathy growth.
In summer, this honeysuckle puts on an extravagant show and is swathed in burgundy-red buds which open into two-tone, fragrant, creamy white and pink flowers which contrast beautifully with its dark green leaves.
The large and elegant candelabras of trumpet blooms create a floral spectacle in June and July where their seductively sweet fragrance will have you mesmerised and will have passers-by wondering where the delightful perfume is coming from!
Easy to grow and maintain with little or no gardening experience, L. caprilia is resistant to mildew and very robust, and can endure cold temperatures to -20°C. This and its naturally compact growth habit, means that it is ideally suited to growing in a container on your patio, decking or balcony.
A natural climber, honeysuckle will take your garden upwards, maximising the space available to fill with its delightfully delicious blooms.
Supplied as an established plant in a 15cm pot with trellis, this variety is perfect as groundcover, as a climbing plant or in a container (with a support frame) on a balcony or terrace.
