This plant was a cutting Wilson kindly gave to me during my first visit to his community garden sometime around June 2008. I took just one cutting, plonked it into the soil, and shared that cutting in a pot with a blue Brazilian snapdragon cutting.
The pot was pretty much left alone until I’d forgotten what plants I had in them. The only reason how I came to know that the pot and plants still existed was because the snapdragon suddenly flowered, its flowers a stark blue contrast against the almost monotonous green of my edible plants.
Then I remembered about the honeysuckle, but still left it there alone, pretty much untended except for the twice-weekly fertilizing and daily watering.
Yet, it has now flowered for me!
I guess that sometimes, it is the over-concern for a plant that might kill it faster than letting it do its own thing, in its own time.
