  • Type of products available: 0/1/1P8

Main asset

Even if the perfume is not at the level of Japanese Honeysuckle, this variety presents the interest of flowers much more vivid, which stand out well of the foliage.


Provide enough place for its important development. Prune in late winter to control the plant in the space devolved.

Semi-evergreen vigorous climber, with oval-shaped large leaves sometimes fused two-by-two, summer blooming in whorls of dark-pink trumpets with 2 orange-yellow lips, slightly fragrant, honey-combed, followed by some red berries in autumn.
