Tellmann's Honeysuckle Overview

Lonicera × tellmanniana is a twining deciduous climber. Vigorous and growing up to 5m tall, it has dark green leaves that are white underneath. From midsummer to late autumn, it produces clusters of long, tubular, orange-yellow flowers. Tellmann's Honeysuckle prefers humus-rich, fertile, moist but well-drained soil. It likes partial shade but will tolerate a position in full sun. Suitable for - and a great addition to - most garden styles, it appreciates a warm wall to grow against, and support to climb up it. It can be grown in a large pot for the patio, but do not let dry out.. A light prune can be done after flowering. This lovely plant has earned a coveted 'RHS Award of Garden Merit'.
