Honeysuckle Trumpet Vine

 Years ago I had Yellow and Orange Honeysuckle Trumpet Vine all around the grain bin.  Apparently birds pooped the seeds all over as they come up in the woods here and there.  I only see the yellow not the orange ones.


It did not survive around the grain bin...but it is thriving in the woods.  Go figure.

I'm not sure why that is but that seems to be the way. Plants grow better where I don't want them.

Interesting plants!

We have the same thing here and it didn't make sense. Now I know.

I’m not a fan of honeysuckle. I spray to kill it. Sister Helen transplants it. Takes all kinds.

Of course! Why do what someone would like you to do :)

I understand. For years I put different plants at the east end of the house and for years they died. I dug honey suckle out of the tree line and planted them there, even though I knew they weren't the right thing to plant there. I figured they'd die. They did not, so I am constantly cutting the back. Go figure.

Plants in the wild always seem to be healthier somehow. A shame the one by the bin died as it is a very pretty flower :)

I'm glad they are surviving someplace. :) :)

it is interesting to see how plants react. The prairie plants I have had for years are doing fine. The creeping bluebell which I accidently got from my mother when she gave me a hosta was fine early this year but it can't stand our heat wave and is drying up. I wonder how much of it will come up next year.

I have heard of honeysuckle but wouldn't know it if walked into it

I've seen the reddish orange ones but never yellow. What a insistent plant!

Plants have a mind of their own. Like some of us. :-)

I have a yellow honeysuckle and it grows wildly but doesn't have many flowers at all. I have a red one that is very civilized and blooms the way it should.
Hummingbirds love those flowers💗.

Go figure. I had the same luck with some flowers I transplanted to the garden in Spokane. They grew fine in the yard ten feet away but when put in the garden. Dead, dead, dead.
Blessings,
Betsy
