Lonicera crassifolia (new)

Really more a splendid ground cover than a climber, as it only gets to about 1m high, and as the former it makes a dense mat of very rounded small, evergreen, densely set semi-succulent foliage that takes on bronze tints in winter cold. The spring/early summer flowers are pale creamy-yellow and pink, followed by bluish-black berries autumn/winter. Hardy.

Lonicera elisae

Introduced from China by Roy Lancaster in 1983 this has made a medium to large winter flowering hardy shrub. Blue-green foliage is very heavily flushed purple in summer and the slender tubed, trumpet shaped, pale primrose yellow flowers are pink tinged and hang in clusters from the bare stems in late winter, giving off a subtle but lovely scent. An excellent intro.
