Honeysuckles rapid twiners

Honeysuckles rapid twinersHoneysuckles are rapid twiners that thrive in any loamy soil, and may be increased by putting down layers in the autumn, after the leaves begin to fall.

They can also be propagated by cuttings taken in the autumn and planted in a shady, sheltered spot. The Caprifolium Brachypoda and the evergreen Caprifolium Sempervirens are handsome, free-flowering kinds, suitable for almost any situation.

Caprifolium Aurea-reticulata has beautifully variegated leaves, which render it very ornamental. Their height varies from six to eight feet.
