Hey all,

I have a nice gallon pot honeysuckle with no where to put it. How would it fair if put in front of a Juniper? Would it climb the juniper, Would it look nice? Would there be any complications? Has anyone tried this? Thanks!

RE: Honeysuckle climbing on Juniper?

Hi Mark,

I havent tried this , but there are two potential problems I see with this combination. First, I think the Juniper (depends on type) would be shorter than the Honeysuckle. The vine will outgrow the shrub in a few seasons. You could keep it trimmed back, but you might sacrifice flowers. Second, Junipers like drier soil, which the vine might not like. They like moist soil. Just a thought.
