Lonicera periclymenum CAPRILIA® Imperial 'INOV86'
Imperial honeysuckle : an avalanche of beautiful red, fragrant flowers.
This selection of climbing honeysuckle of the CAPRILIA ® range derives from the Lonicera periclymenum 'Florida'. Its growth is medium.
From mid June to July this flower bearing variety is particularly remarkable due to its big florets over the entire height of the plant. The fragrant flowers are carmine red in the bud stage, getting lighter on opening, turning cream, then yellow before wilting, producing a beautiful contrast.
The dark green foliage shows off the flowers to their advantage. It is resistant to black spot, mildew and aphids.
