Mystery Honeysuckle

moonwolf_gwDecember 11, 2009

Hi everyone,

I bought a honeysuckle back in June at a local garden center that was selling pots labled "Old Fashioned Honeysuckle" for a small price (around $5). It was rather small when I bought it and it did grow two long vines this year but no flowers. The leaves are not evergreen as most of them turned brown and died after the first heavy frost. The few that remained are brown around the edges. I don't have a camera so I can't post pictures. Anybody have a clue as to what kind of honeysuckle this is? Perhaps trumpet honeysuckle or one of the periclymenums?

I guess I'll find out when it flowers next year.

Yes, you nobody will be able to tell from what you have said here. There are many kinds, even when it blooms you may have to make a study of it to get the right name, unless it is an especially distinctive kind.
