Golden Flame Honeysuckle Overview
Lonicera × heckrottii is a vigorous, deciduous or semi-evergreen (in warmer winters) climber, with strongly scented flowers in summer. Deep pink outside and orange-yellow inside, they are tubular in shape and are followed by red berries in autumn. Sometimes referred to as Lonicera × heckrottii 'Gold Flame', it needs moist but well-drained, fertile soil and support for its climbing habit. It is suitable for most wall-side (or fenced) borders and is often seen in cottage-style gardens. When established, it can be pruned back after flowering by removing a third of the flowering shoots. This lovely cultivar is on the RHS 'Plants for Pollinators' list highlighting plants that produce large amounts of nectar and/or pollen. A great choice for encouraging beneficial insect wildlife into your garden!
