Honeysuckle 'Serotina' produces masses of colourful rings of cartwheel-shaped, almost tubular flowers in reddish-pink and cream shades that bloom from June through to September. The lower rings of creamy pale pink flowers mature to yellow, whilst the upper rings stay a sumptuous pink-toned red. Prominent hairy anthers simply add to the decorative appearance where small bright red fruits appear in autumn after flowering for even further interest. The flowers are emphasised by perfectly formed ovate leaves in a bright green that provide attractive cover for unsightly walls or fences. This vigorous grower will reach a mature height of up to 6 metres but can be pruned back to a more tolerable height if needed. We recommend planting in areas of the garden in full sun or partial shade in well-drained, fertile soil where they will thrive. 9cm pot plants supplied.
