Over the weekend I heard a local gardening show mention night blooming honeysuckle. So far I have not been able to find much information on the web.

Can anyone help? Botanical name?

Never heard of it. Could they have meant night blooming jasmine?

RE: Night Blooming Honeysuckle?

Well, they could have meant night blooming cereus. Some true honeysuckles are only fragrant at night --i.e., goldflame -- but the blooms are open during the day as well as at night.

RE: Night Blooming Honeysuckle?

I did not realize that Goldflame was fragrant at night. I'll have to check it out. Thanks for the tip.

RE: Night Blooming Honeysuckle?

The garden show host is very good and she called it honeysuckle and mentioned that it was rare.

If I find any answers I'll post back.

Thanks for your help.
