If your plant is getting adequate sunshine and is in well amended soil, it should grow for you - unless it is a genetic dwarf such as Clavey's Dwarf Honeysuckle. You can move your plant this fall or early next spring. I'd choose a sunny spot and amend the soil with compost or other organic matter so encourage the roots to spread out. The larger the root system, the larger the plant! Since honeysuckles flower on new growth, pruning it in the early spring should encourage lots of new growth - and flowers. Enjoy your garden!
