Evergreen Climbing Plant. Honeysuckle Lonicera 'Copper Beauty' * NEW INTRODUCTION* Rich Bronze Evergreen Foliage and Scented Flowers. This Evergreen honeysuckle has been container grown so can be planted any time of the year.
Evergreen climbing plant - Honeysuckle Lonicera 'Copper Beauty' is a beautifully scented stunning honeysuckle with trumpet shaped deep copper yellow flowers, that are flushed red in summer. Honeysuckle 'Copper Beauty' has a long flowering period from June all the way through to September followed by small, purple-black berries in the autumn. In addition, this evergreen honeysuckle has new growth which has lush rich bronze hues and then the foliage turns into shades of deep blue-green. Lonicera 'Copper Beauty' is frost hardy and if you prune after flowering by removing one third of the flowering shoots and apply a mulch around the base it will encourage coppery coloured new growth for a fine autumn display. The foliage provides the perfect foil for complimentary planting as its dark shiny ovate leaves will accentuate the intensity of colours that you can choose to plant alongside it - a perfect host! This is a must have climber.
