Henry’s honeysuckle prefers a good moist soil with its roots in the shade and its top growing up into the light. A vigorous climber, supporting itself by twining around other plants. It makes a good dense groundcover plant where it has the space to run along the ground, but it will swamp smaller plants. Any pruning is best carried out in spring.
