This weeks theme is RED
Dropmore Scarlet Honeysuckle is supposed to be red, as the name implies, but in this photo the flowers seem to be pinkish don’t they?
Other times, when viewed in the garden, the flowers seems to have more orange in them and at other times they seem red. I guess this is one of those plants who’s flowers can change color slightly with the seasons or due to temperatures.
The Dropmore Scarlet Honeysuckle is a vine and it’s one of the hardiest vines you can purchase. However, having said that, mine didn’t do so well in the garden this year. I don’t know if it’s because we didn’t water as much this past year as we normally do or if something else was wrong.
I didn’t prune it in the spring. Perhaps it needs a pruning each year. I’ll have to look that up and see if I can make this plant do well next year.
