Goat-leaf honeysuckle

Lonicera caprifolium

''Lonicera caprifolium'' is a species of perennial flowering plants in the genus ''Lonicera'' of the Caprifoliaceae family. It is native to parts of Europe, and naturalised in South East Britain. It can readily be distinguished from Europe's most common species, ''Lonicera periclymenum'', by its topmost leaves which are perfoliate as the latin name suggests . It is a vigorous, deciduous climber growing up to 8 metres. It bears masses of very fragrant, cream-coloured flowers, tinged with pink, appearing in midsummer.

This plant has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.
