Description


How wonderful, the small, non-climbing shrub, Lonicera caerulea 'Blue Star' produces an abundance of purple, edible, almost rectangular fruits in late summer. High in vitamin C they can be eaten fresh from the plant or made into jams or jellies, and are said to taste like blueberries, with a hint of sugary honey. They can also be frozen for later use. The fruits follow a smothering of yellow-white, scented, tubular blooms which are produced in early summer. Frequently known as Honeysuckle, a name synonymous with summer and perfume, the popular name was given because centuries ago, people would eat the sweet nectar produced in the tubular flowers. Lonicera caerulea 'Blue Star' is a fully hardy perennial to around -15 C, no winter protection will be required throughout most of the UK. Preferring to be grown in moist, well-drained soil in a sunny spot, she will reach a height and spread of around 1-1.5m.
