'Serotina' begins flowering later than the species and blooms over a longer period. Dirr says that most of what's sold as 'Serotina' in the US is an impostor.

In the Eastern US, where Japanese honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica) is prohibitively invasive, L. periclymenum is the best twining honeysuckle for fragrance. The fragrance is sweet and not heavy, strongest in the evening.

This species isn't aggressive in the garden, nor does it invade natural areas here (Boston Z6a).

Flowers occur in clusters at the ends of stems. To prolong bloom, I try to deadhead each cluster as it fades, before the fruit develops. When I do this, it goes through several flushes of bloom over the season. Otherwise, fruiting will bring blooming to a halt. The fruit is scarlet and highly ornamental, and I stop deadheading in September to allow a final crop to develop.

Bloom is best in full sun, but flowering can be good in light/dappled shade as well. In full sun the foliage is also less prone to powdery mildew.

Because it twines around its support, this plant shouldn't be allowed to climb into shrubs and trees, as it can strangle whatever its stem wraps itself around. It's better to plant it where it can climb on a fence or trellis or invisible netting.

Flowering occurs on new wood. Best pruned in early spring to remove dead wood as necessary.

Dirr says this is hardy Z4-8.
