Botanical name: Lonicera

Besides the much loved climbers, honeysuckles include a number of useful shrubs. Some of them are evergreen and ideal for hedging or topiary pieces, others are winter flowering and highly perfumed. The climbing honeysuckle is a classic addition to a romantic cottage garden or even a wildlife haven. Plus, don’t forget honeyberry - the edible honeysuckle, which can be used to make a tasty homemade jam.
