Which one of you clever folk can identify this honeysuckle we inherited. It is huge and has the most incredibly strong perfume.

    I find that my honeysuckle needs warmth to make the most of the scent. 

    This is my Belgica …

    My Serotina is darker both foliage and flower, and isn’t open yet … it’s always much later than Belgica

    I’ve been looking at Rhubarb and Custard which is a similar colour. RnC is one of the smaller ones though. Yours looks quite big.

    It was warm and sunny at the nursery
    This one is HUGE,(inspite of regular pruning) it's 2mt tall by about  the same on width and depth. It started off on a 6 by  6 trellis we've let it scramble through and over roses,hebes. course where we live Dove we are probably some weeks ahead of you. I have tomatoes on my outdoor plants.  Think hubby will have to try and take some cuttings
