Jacobinia suberecta Velvet Honeysuckle on category Flowering Shrubs
Also known as the velvet honeysuckle, Jacobinia suberecta is an unusual and highly desirable perennial that is rarely offered for sale – so this is your opportunity to grow something different that none of your friends are likely to have – or even know about! One of those plants that is a great all-round garden performer, Jacobinia will provide vibrant colour and form all year round and is perfect whether displayed in a pot or planted in the garden border. Giving you a long flowering display from late spring to autumn, the fiery orange, tubular blooms are often visited by hummingbirds in its native South America – and although we can't guarantee that in the UK, we're sure that this delightful bush will attract other wildlife into your garden. In addition to its flowers, the soft velvet leaves are a real feature, emerging downy silver and ageing to a glossy green which gives a striking contrast to the attractive flowers. Perfect for growing between other perennials and shrubs as it reaches just 1.5m wide and 1m high, Jacobinia is semi-evergreen (plants may lose their leaves in winter) giving year-round colour and structure. Easy to grow and winter hardy down to -7°C, this is a plant that is not fussy with regard to soil and will tolerate most types, including dry and coastal soils.
