Honeysuckle Lonicera 'Mint Crisp' - Lonicera 'Mint Crisp' is an outstanding NEW variety of evergreen honeysuckle that has attractive variegated green and cream summer foliage which will brighten up any trellis or wall and has the added bonus that the foliage will change in colour and have a distinctive pink hue with the onset of colder temperatures in the autumn. Lonicera 'Mint Crisp' has scented, glistening white flowers when they first open, which turn to rich creamy- gold from June to October. This climbing plant really does deserve to be planted near doors and paths that are frequently used, not only so it can be seen regularly but so you can enjoy the beautiful sweet fragrance it gives off - a sheer delight!
Solanum jasminoides var. 'alba' - This variety, Solanum jasminoides var. 'alba', of Chilean Potato Vine is the one to choose because it is refreshing to look at and will give you masses of pure snow white flowers to look at all summer long. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (RHS AGM) and it is just the thing to cover a sunny wall. This vigorous scented climber will flower for you from June through to the end of September and has heavenly white and lilac buds which open into lovely big clusters of scented white flowers with stunningly bright lemon centres, followed by yellowish-white fruits with mid green leaves.
