I have a rather large honeysuckle that faired well over the course of the winter and Spring. It was big and bushy with lots of foilage. Now, it has lost the bulk of its leaves and not full and bushy. It does have blooms on it. What happened? Cna you help?

I'm not sure why the leaves would fall off but the flowers remain. It's highly unusual and defies explanation! I'd prune the plant back to encourage healthy new growth - with leaves your plant will develop new flowers.
