Japanese Honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica)
|Common Name||Latin Name||Plant Family|
A very vigorous climbing plant, it makes a good dense ground cover plant where it has the space to run over the ground but it will swamp smaller plants[197, 200]. The sub-species L. japonica repens is especially used for this purpose on the continent. The cultivar ‘Halliana’ has also been recommended[188, 197]. This cultivar should be clipped back severely in the spring if it gets untidy, it responds well to such conditions. Plants should be spaced about 1 metre apart each way.
The plant is said to be insecticidal.
The stems have been used in making baskets.
