An unusual shrub native to parts of China and Korea, Lonicera maackii has lovely, fragrant white flowers fading to creamy-yellow as they age, followed by masses of dark red berries in autumn.

Although known as an invasive plant in warmer parts of the U.S.A. and New Zealand, we have found that it grows at a reasonably sedate rate and does not spread in our own cool gardens in Derbyshire, UK.
