Discuss Lonicera periclymenum 'Serotina' (Late Dutch honeysuckle) with other Shoot members.
I have a 3 year old plant that grows well. This is the first year it has flowered, but im only getting flowers at the top of the plant. Also most of the leaves have dropped off. I have attached a photo of the problem.
The plant is in full sun for most of the afternoon.
I would be grateful for any advice
Thanks in advance.
This plant begins to shoot early spring then loses it's leaves with the exception of the tip growth, any ideas as to the cause?
