Evergreen Honeysuckle, which one?

ShepsSheps Posts: 2,196

After some great advice on GWF, I have decided on some Honeysuckle to cover my back fence panels.

I will be going down the evergreen route as advised and was wondering which one / ones to go for, are the Japonica the evergreen type?

If so, I was looking at 


Hall's Prolific

Darts World / Red World

If anyone has any experience of the above how do they get on, mine will be in the below beds ( 6ft x 2ft x 2ft ) and growing up the trellis.


Also, would I be OK putting 2 in the middle bed?, or would that be too congested?

    Hi Sheps. Those are good choices. Darts World I think is only semi evergreen. Another rampant evergreen honeysuckle is Lonicera henryi. I don't think you need two in your central planter as they are so vigorous. Liz

    Thanks for the quick reply, Liz...and thanks for the advice, I'll go with just the one in each flower bed.

    Will check out henryi tonight.
