Lonicera Periclymenum AKA European Honeysuckle/Woodbine

Hi everyone,

I'm thinking of planting a variety of this kind of honeysuckle in my garden next year. Anyone out there grow a variety of it? The ones I'm interested in are Serotina (Early Dutch), Belgica (Late Dutch), Berries Jubilee, Graham Thomas and Sweet Sue.

It will get eastern sun (half-day) and will be growing in a pot on the back steps. Annual vines (in the ground) will be growing alongside it (MGs, MFs and cup and saucer vines).

Let me know what you think!

The most strongly colored one is 'Serotina', it pretty much blows the others away with its visual impact. 'Graham Thomas' has the advantage of repeat bloom, the late flowering is what caused it to be noticed and propagated.

Bboy, thanks for the info! I'm thinking of leaning toward Graham Thomas. Does it have a strong scent? Are there any mail-order nurseries that carry it?

I have the Serotina "Florida" dutch honeysuckle.
It doesn't grow real fast. I'm sure this year it may start to grow more for me. The flowers are stunning, purple stems, red berries in fall, and it is fragrant also. Beautiful vine.
Check out Brushwood nursery online. That is where I have bought my vines and have never been disappointed.

Hi Butterfly,

I have heard nothing but good about Brushwood. I'm thinking of ordering from them in the spring. I may get the Serotina Florida, since it has good reviews.
