The beautifully scented variety, ‘Halliana’, blooms white and yellow flowers, which will grow up to eight metres tall in a sunny or partially shaded spot.
There is also an early Dutch that flowers in early summer and a late Dutch honeysuckle, which blooms a little later.
By planting them together in a sunny or partially-shaded spot with moist but well-drained soil, they will intertwine, giving a really long flowering time on your wall.
Another popular choice is Garrya elliptica (silk tassel bush) which has lovely catkins during the winter months. This evergreen shrub provides structure all year round, making a great nesting spot for birds. If you’ve got space to fill on the side of your home, Garrya elliptica is certainly a great choice to add colour. It will lean itself onto the wall, but it may need some initial tying in place to get it going.
