How could you resist Lonicera periclymenum Scentsation, one of the most highly scented of all honeysuckles? This hardy, evergreen climber has gorgeous yellow and white tubular blooms, which are attractive to bees and butterflies, from late spring to early autumn. Honeysuckle is a traditional cottage garden plant, but will fit in well in any informal garden.
Plant this where you can stand or sit and inhale the honeyed fragrance. Train up and over a fence, arch, wall or pergola.
