General description

General description: The Graham Thomas cultivar was created in a plant nursery in Warwickshire, England in 1960, and was named after an English gardener. It’s one of the most valued cultivars, thanks to it being hardy and blooming profusely for a long period of time. It’s a low maintenance honeysuckle, quite resistant to frost and disease. Graham Thomas is ideal for beginner gardeners and is suitable for growing to cover arbours, pergolas, and fences, as well as in plant containers.


Flowers: This honeysuckle has large, tubular flowers around 4-5 cm long. Initially flowers are white but turn light yellow as they mature. They give off a very pleasant, intense fragrance.


Blooming: Graham Thomas has a very long flowering season that begins in May and ends in September. It blooms profusely and covers any support structure, such as fences or arbours, with a dense cloak of flowers.


Leaves: This honeysuckle’s leaves are elliptical or ovate, 4-6 cm long, dark green with a silverish-green underside. Graham Thomas has twining stems.


Fruit: Graham Thomas bears decorative, shiny, red berries that ripen from June until October.


Cultivation requirements: The Graham Thomas honeysuckle can be planted in sunny or semi-shaded or sunny spots, however it grows best in locations with lots of daylight. Places near walls with south-eastern or south-western exposure are ideal. This cultivar has no special soil requirements and grows in most places apart from those with very dry, sandy soils. The ideal substrate for Graham Thomas to thrive is fertile, slightly moist clay soil with a high humus content and a neutral or slightly acidic pH. The substrate should be airy and permeable.


Care: In autumn it is worth covering the base of the plant either with compost or decomposed, old or granulated manure. Regular watering is needed during the growth season (unless heavy rainfall occurs).


Pruning: Trimming a young honeysuckle vine should not be feared – such pruning forces outward growth right from the base, and as a result the vine looks denser in later years. This variety does not require regular pruning but handles it well. In spring, withered or damaged stems should be removed, and the remaining ones should be either left or lightly trimmed as desired. Every 2-3 years, a rejuvenating cut is recommended to avoid the lowest parts thinning out and becoming bare.


Props: Graham Thomas easily grows on all kinds of nets, poles, hung ropes, grates and trellises, fences, pergolas and arbours.


Overwintering: This honeysuckle is frost resistant (in hardiness zone 5a, withstanding -29°C) so handles winters in temperate climates well. Protecting young seedlings for the winter is recommended, for e.g., by piling a mound of soil or peat about 30 cm in height over the plant. Graham Thomas is deciduous.


Origin: England.
