Lonicera 'Hall's Prolific'
Also known as Japanese Honeysuckle, Hall's Prolific is an exceptionally vigorous climber, bearing masses of sweetly scented white flowers, which fade to yellow as they age, between mid April and August It can easily reach 3m high by 4 m wide, although can be kept smaller by regular pruning. Semi evergreen, it will retain most of it's leaves in mild winters, but may be completely deciduous in harsher times. Honeysuckle is best cut back by 2/3rds the first spring after planting and tied into a frame if control is required, however it can look fabulous left to do it's own thing rambling through trees or hedgerows. Every few years if complete renovation is required it can be cut back hard (50 - 60cm from the ground and then thinned out as it springs back to life. Alyays prune back to just above healthy buds. Completely hardy, will grow well in any fertile, moist but well drained conditions, in sun or partial shade.
