White shrub. The ovoid, pointed buds of honeysuckle white (RHSCC 159D) open double (35-40 petals), high-centered to flat, 4-4.5 inch blooms of honeysuckle white tinted with azalea and orient pink and intensifying with age. The blooms borne singly and in clusters of 2-10, have an intense sweet fragrance. The large, abundant, leathery foliage is dark green tinted with copper when young. The thorns are olive-green and awl-like. The erect, vigorous, very bushy, 3.5 x 3.5 ft plant blooms profusely in June and then continually until killing frost. The plants are winter-hardy in Iowa without protection.
