Plant of the Week

Here is the new plant of the week. Obviously this is an old picture since nothing is growing right now, but here's a little taste of the spring to come. This isn't from our yard but it is a nice example of a vine being used to accent a structure. Go ahead and make an educated guess!

  1. Clematis? I think that is the spelling...

  2. It looks like one of the honeysuckle family to me.

  4. My first thought was honeysuckle but then hummingbird came to mind. Now I am not sure. The one thing that leads me away from honeysuckle is I did not know it was a vine.

  5. Upon a closer look, my clematis guess is way off... Duh...

  6. It's a honeysuckle, perhaps 'Goldflame' or 'Mandarin'. Beautiful plant--looks like a living sculpture.

  7. If this is honey suckle, I have never seen this type before! The only kind I have ever seen is growing wild all over the south!

  8. Skeeter the Honeysuckle also grows wild in the north but people also have them on their lawns up here. They are a very nice bush/tree on a lawn. Nice leaves with nice fragrant flowers and then berrys. I have 2 and one is taller than my house. I used to put Christmas lights on it but it got way too big to do that now. It is on the side on my house so the smaller one in the front yard now gets the lights at Christmas and Halloween. I dug them both up in the woods and put them in their now home and they were very small when I dug them up. Also have lilacs and roses I dug up in the woods, including my seven sisters roses that is over my house and been cut down to nothing 3 times in 20 years (because my hubby ranted and raved about it being on the house). I guess he gave up as have'nt heard any raving for years. The woods offer some great gems!

  9. Not sure if you have a set time or not since I am new to your blog...
    I have pondered this one for a while now.
    When will you reveal the answer to us Dave?

  10. I try to give it about a week so I'll probably post on it tonight. :)

  11. Well I'm coming in late on this one but I haven't found the answer posted yet.

    My guess is the same as Jodi. I have Lonicera sempervirens 'Mandarin' growing in my garden and it sure looks similar.
