Fragrant Cloud Honeysuckle

Hi y'all!
Was wondering whether anyone has had experience with Fragrant Cloud Honeysuckle. I'm tempted to buy one to tuck into a sunny southwest patio corner, to hopefully scramble up a trellis. Would it be happy?

Hi Posy!

I don't have Fragrant Cloud but I do have Lonicera periclymenum 'Scentsation' and 'Serotina' (different cultivars of this honeysuckle species). Mine are doing great growing in a bed that receives full sun until about 2pm.
Do you plan on growing yours in a container or in the ground by the patio corner?
I think it would do fine either way.
Thanks for posting this. I've never heard of the Fragrant Cloud cultivar! :)


RE: Fragrant Cloud Honeysuckle

A quick Google shows a gorgeous plant covered in beautiful blooms, and Honeysuckle always smells wonderful. I don't have this variety, but I do have several others... they seem to like placement in full sun, and do require a sturdy fence or other support to climb.

If you can provide it with enough sun, I'd say it would make a nice addition to the garden.

I didn't check on its tolerance for cold or heat, so I'd look into preferred zone before purchasing. Several of the more popular catalogs should carry it.
