Pruning an overgrown Honeysuckle Vine

prairiemoon2 z6 MAFebruary 18, 2010


I have a Honeysuckle growing on a small arbor and the arbor needs to be stained this year. I am also considering moving it, but not sure yet. Wondering if anyone here has some experience doing that? I was thinking of just cutting it back all the way to the ground and if I move it, just digging it up as soon as the ground is workable. If I don't move it, I thought I would wait until after it bloomed to prune it back. Or could I wait to move it until after it bloomed too? Any other suggestions?

Is it the native Lonicera?

Most flower on new wood, so pruning won't hurt at all.

Hi Carol, No, it looks like a 'Goldflame' but they are supposed to bloom all summer to frost and mine doesn't, so I'm not sure which one I have. It is not the native. It is fragrant.
