It's shaping up to be a good summer, I planted this back in june 2013.
later that year It only grew one flower it was beautiful.
I never noticed what was behind the flower head it has a complete circular leaf formed around its stem, I have never seen a honey suckle like this before this year its covered in buds. later in the year its going to be stunning, I need to get some more trelis to help support it.
Originally it was at the front of the house planted on the end of a hedge which stopped at the front corner on our carport that we had ( now long gone ) It just never grew well at all and never flowered.
The hedge was taking all the nutrients from the soil . When I took down the carport and removed the hedge, I dug out the what was left of a sorry looking honeysuckle I planted its remains into a large pot, threw it down the far end of the garden while I built the new fence and completely forgot it till the following spring.
I then planted it where it it now, it's now catching the early morning sun till early afternoon this is the results , bought from a supermarket for a £1 bargain. I am so glad it has survived.
