About This Plant

Sun/part shade; deciduous and shrublike, with fragrant bluish-green foliage and clusters of small white flowers on bare, winter branches. The fragrance is soap-like, rather than sweet. Much of the rest of the year, this honeysuckle is easily overlooked. It prefers moisture and a bit of shade, but can grow in understory where soils are deep enough. Winter honeysuckle has been known to spread and become invasive when birds eat the berries.

Maintenance

None needed.
