Lonicera tragophylla Hemsl

Lonicera tragophyllaA very beautiful Chinese species producing bright golden flowers. The young leaves are bronze purple tinged, some forms are very purple leaved.

Chinese honeysuckle needs a really shaded site to thrive, ideal for growing up a north or east facing wall or up into a tree. Hot sun will cause yellowing and defoliation. Prefer a humus rich moisture retentive soil. Flowers are huge clusters of bright gold flared tubular trumpets and without doubt the largest flowers of the hardy species.
