Leycesteria formosa


Himalayan Honeysuckle

USDA Zone: 7-9

Plant number: 1.316.980


Himalayan Honeysuckle is a woody shrub, often included in the perennial border. Plants produce upright bamboo-like hollow stems of a beautiful powdery grey colour. White honeysuckle flowers are held in drooping clusters of deep red bracts, later followed by showy purple-black edible berries, said to taste like toffee. An amazing cut flower. Best used as a specimen shrub towards the back of a sunny border. Good deer resistance. The flowers are attractive to hummingbirds. Sometimes known in England as Pheasant Berry because pheasants are said to gobble the fruit.
