Wanted to share pix of my wood vines. Some call them a honeysuckle, & I guess they are a honeysuckle of sorts or in the honeysuckle family. The red one was given to me close to 40 years ago by my Aunt Elsie, who also gave me my purple Achiminee's and my Jeruselum Cherries. Years later, I found a yellow one from Park Seed Company and got it, but it made a single stem coming out of the ground and I've never been able to get any little ones from around it like you can the red one. Both are beautiful. Does anyone have these in another color?? Notice how the leaves are a little different though from average honeysuckle plants.

Thank you Frilly. They do not have the traditional sweet heavenly honeysuckle smell, I have never noticed a lot if fragrance, but they have a long bloom season and are so beautiful! I just love them. Thank You!

The first pic you posted looks a lot like my Coral Honeysuckle, which is a great plant!

Linda, is this a pix of your honeysuckle, as the leaves look different to the leaves on mine. But I could be wrong??

Yes, that's my Coral Honeysuckle in my pic above.

Yes, looking at your pix, I can see the leaves are different, mine has a pair situated opposite each other on the stem always and yours are like most honeysuckles. The blooms look the same though. My yellow has the same leaves.
