Winter Honeysuckle

This honeysuckle is a hybrid between Lonicera fragrantissima and the related Lonicera standishii. It is a large deciduous or semi-evergreen shrub with very fragrant creamy white flowers in winter or early spring. It is perhaps a neater and more attractive plant than the standard Winter Honeysuckle (Lonicera fragrantissima) but likewise valued for the fragrant flowers in winter. Plant is sun or semi-shade in location with good, well-drained soil. Originated before 1920 at Darmstadt Botanic Garden in Germany.
