12/06/19 - this shrubby honeysuckle often goes unnoticed in my garden, and I dont often take photos of it but it’s currently covered in these twin black berries and red bracts right now. The flowers are often missed as they are small, but yellow-red in colour. It’s got to a nice size now of about a metre tall. Also commonly called the Californian Honeysuckle or Twinberry Honeysuckle

I forgot I had this - will be the first time I see it flower. I don't think they are significant flowers, and I'm more interested in the berries that develop later. 🤓

The flowers are not hugely spectacular but the reddish bracts around them are more noticeable.

I saw one at Hyde Hall last weekend which had much redder flowers than mine, whereas last night I found a couple of tiny yellow flowers had already dropped off. I'll try catching these pair as they come out and post another pic in a few days @tiggrx

Bought this last year and yet to see it flower. I'm glad to see these fat buds have appeared 😁

New member to the garden. Apparently I have already missed the flowering period so looking forward to seeing it flourish next year. Now, where to plant it is the next decision!?
