Honeysuckle also known as Woodbine it is a vigorous deciduous twining climber, occasionally keeping its old leaves over winter. The sweet, nectar-rich flowers are highly scented by night, much less so by day. The plant is usually pollinated by moths or long-tongued bees and develops bright red berries in autumn which are a great source of energy for birds.
It is one of several honeysuckle species valued in the garden, for its ability to twine around other plants, or to cover unsightly walls or outbuildings; and for the intense fragrance of its profuse flowers in summer. It needs to be planted with its roots in the shade, and its flowering top in sun or partial shade.
