    Is this a clematis? Again, moved to a new house and have no idea whats in my garden or how to care for it!! This grew through some really overgrown Jasmine last year, but it didnt flower. This year its growing again, but still no flowers. (I did lol the Jasmine back quite severely last year, but luckily it seems to be growing back!!)
    Thanks, again!! :-)

      Goodness....I thought I was pretty well up on honeysuckles.
      I love them and grew many different ones..climbers and shrubby ones..but have never heard or seen Lonicera implexa ..common name Minorca honeysuckle before.

      Hardly anyone in UK sells it ....so it is rather rare.
      Maybe not hardy here?
      Lonicera implexa leaves have no stalks.
      The leaf edges are smooth.

      Ses honeysuckle leaves have stalks and leaf edges are nor smooth.
      ..they look lobed almost like an oak leaf.

      I wouldn't even say it was evergreen.
      Sorry Scrungee.

      Ses ..wait..do not prune it .
      When it flowers please post pics.

      Hi guys :-D
      I googled honeysuckle and found this photo, it looks like the leaves and the stems. If it flowers like this I'll be well chuffed ;-) all the photo has on it though is the location, in Italy lol maybe that's why it's not flowered!!
      Should I feed it and see if that helps it flower, or is it too late on the season for that? I'm near Glasgow, but up in the hills a little, if that makes any difference?
      Thanks so much guys :-) I shall keep yous updated on it's progress ;-)
