Lonicers standishii 'Budapest'

11th March 2012

Lonicera standishii is a rather ordinary looking small shrub from China that redeems its rustic summer simplicity in a smothering of winter flowers. The typical form has creamy white flowers but 'Budapest' is a recent introduction with a pinkish tinge. So far it is large enough to support two flowers but there wouldn't be enough room for many more and it has a few years to go before it can be judged realistically.
