A vining shrub, this "Purple Leaved Honeysuckle" produces scented purplish rose blossoms ivory white inside. Marvelous fragrant vine willing to hide any eyesore in your landscape--such as your neighbor's garage. This species has long been important in Asian medicine in treatments for hepatitis, dysentery, pesky boils and those embarrassing nettle rashes as well as for its antibacterial and fever control properties. So if you end up with too much of this, start your own pharmacy.

Cultural Codes

Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.

If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.
