Lonicera hildebrandiana Collet & Hemsl.

Giant Honeysuckle

Fast growing, extremely robust, evergreen climber. Leaves ovate to 15 cm long. Flowers paired, the floral tubes to 15 cm or more long, yellow, becoming orange-red; early summer. By far the largest and most attractive of the climbing species but a vigorous grower needing plenty of space.
