Lonicera fragrantissima

This plant is a shrubby honeysuckle; it doesn't climb by twining around other plants, it just sits and grows like a shrub. It's usually described as "unusual" as a garden plant, but I don't know why; it's not commonly grown but it's easy enough. It likes good soil and sunshine. It flowers profusely in the winter months, with tiny little white flowers that are heavily scented. Very pretty, and it brings you flowers before the daffs come out.

Do you think it would grow in Wiltshire - I'm looking for lots of new shrubs
