The Wild Ones
At my old house, my honeysuckle vine was huge. This one is a cutting from that, and I do remember it takes a few years to settle in. Only a small sprinkling of flower yet.. oh I can't wait for it to get bigger! The scent is wonderful, I've been taking one flower inside in a vase every now and then.
The wild fuchsia at the old house was also huge, and here is a cutting of that. And again, I just can't wait for it to become that size again! I want to take a few more cuttings from this one to put by the front wall.
The wild rose, Moyesii, is also meant to grow huge. This was the rose affected worst by those tiny sawfly caterpillars, which I think I finally got rid of by hand picking them off. I can see new leaves emerging, odd time of year for that.. but we will see. Next year, I will keep a close eye on the roses, because this year, I didn't even see the little beasties till it was almost too late. The rosehips are turning out lovely though, hopeing for a bigger crop next year.
