My variegated Honeysuckle is now beginning to open. Originally I got this as a cutting from Biddy. It's a great little doer and brightens up a section of my North-facing border very well.  It also has a Passiflora caerulea as a companion which is just visible in the photos.

Thanks again to Biddy.

It looks great Jacinta. Is it a smallish well behaved honeysuckle? I find that they usually shoot off in all directions.

It's up to about 6ft now, but I have it at least 7 years, I'd say. So not too badly-behaved. And it's free to shoot off in any direction it wants in this particular area.

I was delighted to find that a Passiflora that I planted a few years ago has decided to send up a new shoot!!!!

Hazel, now that your Passiflora has made an appearance, it will grow from strength to strength. I hope yesterday went extremely well for you, and the Hospice.

Looks lovely Jacinta.  Variegation and pale flowers are great lighteners for shady areas.
