Lonicera 'Serotina' Dutch Honeysuckle



Lonicera periclymenum 'Serotina' is a deciduous climber with purple stems, oblong green leaves and reddish-purple buds that open to pink trumpets with white interiors. The fragrant blooms will continue throughout most of the summer. Lonicera 'Serotina's flowers are followed by red berries in mid to late summer. Also called Dutch Honeysuckle, 'Serotina' is a woody, twining perennial that needs sturdy support.

Lonicera 'Serotina' prefers full sun to light shade and moist to average, well-drained humus-rich soil. It is somewhat drought tolerant once established. This honeysuckle is best in cooler regions and will benefit from afternoon shade in warmer areas. 'Serotina' blooms on old wood so prune just after flowering.

We ship via UPS & USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
