A writer in The Villa Gardener thinks that the Honeysuckle is one of the most regularly flowered climbers in cultivation, taking rank for effect, and surpassing in many points - odor for instance - even the gorgeously colored clematises, which are in every modern garden. As a standard, the Honeysuckle merits the very foremost place in our villa gardens. " We have seen it with thousands of flower umbels in pale yellow and pale pink, decorating villa grounds in a way that no single plant in the month of July can do."

It is scarcely possible, in words, to portray its extreme beauty and effectiveness.

Buy a plant of it (cost not 50 cents), train or tie it to a stout stake, as one would do a standard rose; prune it not too severely, but in the way a .Hybrid China Rose ought to be done; give it a good soil to grow in, and it needs no further attention. It will grow into a plant that will astonish, by its flowering capacity, thousands and tens of thousands who have not seen it so trained.

The Honeysuckle As A Standard #1

A writer in the Villa Gardener thinks that the Honeysuckle is one of the most regularly flowered climbers in cultivation, taking rank for effect, and surpassing in many points - odor, for instance - even the gorgeous colored clematises, which arc in every modern garden. As a standard, the honeysuckle merits the very foremost place in our villa gardens. " We have seen it with thousands of flower umbels in pale yellow and pale pink, decorating villa grounds in a way that no single plant in the month of July can do." It is scarcely possible, in words, to portray its extreme beauty and effectiveness.
