Brett--absolutely gorgeous, beautifully grown specimen. Love the way you have it trained. Is that just one plant? How many years old is it?

Wow, that's very impressive! That's the kind of honeysuckle display I've always wanted, but can't have due to aphids.

Brett,

Your honeysuckle is amazingly beautiful and so impressive!!

So many colorful flowers!! If this isn't laying the welcome mat out, I don't know what is!!

We don't have aphids here in our yard on honeysuckle, but our cool summers and ever increasing shade prevent such a colorful display of honeysuckle in our yard.

Enjoy your hummingbird visitors, which I'm sure are on the way in the next day or two!

Brett, that is stunning! I've often read not to overfeed honeysuckle. Do you feed it? If so, with what and how often?

Thanks all for the comments.
Donald- It is one plant, five or six years old.
Tom M - I don't usually feed it but I did give it a dose of Urban Farms Flowers & Blooms in early March. That and a very mild winter might account for this display, the best it's had. Someone suggested the Urban Farms product on here last year. If you want some, the company web site prices are better than Amazon. Brett (KY)
