Newbie Q - how to seperate honeysuckle

Posted by bubbles29 4 (My Page) on

My honeysuckle is going crazy, is there a way to seperate it?
I trimed it back in the fall, but it's still a bit huge.

What can I do?

I heard if you take a branch off the honeysuckle shrub and put it in water, it will root. Any idea how long it takes before it gets roots?

What kind?

When I lived in Maryland, we had a lovely honeysuckle bush by our front door. At least I think it was a bush. The flowers were always only white. I never remember having any yellow, let alone reddish, flowers like I see in the catalogs. Would that have been the same kind that grows here? I'd love to have one now.

RE: Newbie Q - how to seperate honeysuckle

I don't think it's any special kind - the flowers are red on the outside (from what I can rememeber of them, they're not blooming yet).

You are welcome to some - if I can figure out how to keep a trimming alive or divide it some how that is <:
