Thanks Kathy, I have finished clearing out all the dead stuff from within and given it more air and I am pleased to say that after thorough watering things semm to be looking a little better. Still a bit sad though. I just hoped there might be an answer that I hadn't thought of.

Hi, Peter,
Do you have this in your 'Plants I Have' list? If so, this site will tell you what diseases and/or pests could be bothering your Lonicera. Have a look and if nothing seems to fit your situation, please let me know. Having said that, though, I am wondering if you might want to ease up a little on the water at this point. How often are you watering it?

Lonicera japonica 'Halliana' leaf curl up and die off.

Question from Peter Trill

In forum: Pests, diseases and invasive biosecurity risks

I have a 3 year old Lonicera japonica 'Halliana' on a north facing fence intertwined which put on great early growth and leaves were healthy. Suddenly in May there was a huge leaf drop and now the poor leaves that are left are curled and pale. The flowers are starting to show now but the plant looks really sad. I wondered if the dry May was to blame, but as soon as we noticed the drop we gave lots of water and continue to do so. We are on chalk with good top soil close to the Sussex Downs. Can anyone suggest a reason or cure please?

Climber for a west facing wall

Comment from David Sewell

Hello Sophie,

Interesting that you're not having much luck with Clematis. It might be worth hoofing out some of the soil in the border and replacing it with good new stuff or at least enriching the soil and then trying Clematis armandii which is white-flowering scented, evergreen and pretty vigourous.
One of the semi-evergreen scented Honeysuckles like Lonicera japonica 'Halliana' or 'Halls Prolific' would be worth a look too. Amazing scent! Wisteria sinensis is also mildly scented and would love a west facing wall but obviously isn't evergreen.

For small scented shrubs you could try one or two of the following:
Daphne odora 'Aureomarginata'
Lavandula - loads of varieties to choose from but Hidcote is a reliable old cultivar.
Lonicera purpusii - one of my favourites and flowering now.
Philadelphus 'Lemoinei'
Viburnum carlesii - another favourite of mine and now much easier to find than it used to be.

All best,
David
