Honeysuckle, also called Lonicera, is a plant whose flower is subtly scented. Known for its twining lianas that wrap around a fence, wall or flowered hedges, the honeysuckle adapts to all types of climates. It is a climbing plant that brings freshness and voluptuousness, particularly appreciated for its intoxicating fragrance in the world of perfumery.
Honeysuckle: characteristics, planting and care
Native to temperate regions of Europe, honeysuckle is a shrub of the Caprifoliaceae family. It is a perennial plant with persistent or semi-persistent foliage depending on the variety:
- climbing honeysuckle (Lonicera Goldflame, Lonicera Dropmore Scarlet, Locinera Henryi, Lonicera Japonica)
- shrub honeysuckle (Winter honeysuckle, Locinera Tatarica, Locinera Nitida
Its foliage can have different shades, from pale green to dark green and bluish. These flowers also offer several colors ranging from white to yellow, pink, red or orange. Surprisingly hardy, honeysuckle is very easy to care for and requires very little watering. It blooms between March and December, depending on the variety of honeysuckle.
In gardening, this climbing plant with long lianas is often used to embellish a facade, a fence or a structure such as a garden shed. In the ground or in a pot, it is a plant recommended for those who do not have a particularly green thumb and who want a flower garden all year round, thanks to the multiplication of its cuttings.
