Lonicera 'Novso''Honey Baby'
- Lonicera "Honey
Baby"® belongs to the family caprifoliaceae, the Honeysuckles. The
honeysuckle is comprised of about 180 species including 32 species of
climbers and is a native plant in the Northern Hemisphere. There are
many cultivated varieties of honeysuckle.
Following a very specific criteria, Plant Breeders and scientists at the
Boskoop Research Station for Ornamental Horticultural, The Netherlands
wanted to create a compact growing lonicera that would exhibit the heavy
flowering and fragrance of Lonicera ‘Halliana’
Two climbing cultivars, Lonicera japonica ‘Halliana’ and Lonicera
periclymenum ‘Belgica Select’ were chosen and crossed to breed this
relatively small bush plant called "Honey Baby"
The breeding process and selection took ten years and we think you will
agree the resulting cultivar is a "must have" for any garden. "Honey
Baby" t.m. produces a profusion of flowers all summer long, varying in
colour from cream and light yellow to yellow.
From dusk to dawn this honeysuckle spreads a very pleasant fragrance.
The plant is somewhat winter hardy zone 4 and requires no special
location. "Honey Baby"
® copf performs best if it is cut back each year,
it is an excellent pot plant for the balcony and outdoor living space.
It is most attractive planted as a low hedge and maintained at a height
of 1.m /3ft.
