Post #3393032

We moved house a couple of years ago and this is the last remaining plant in our garden that we haven't identified yet! It is a deciduous shrub, 2 metres tall (at an estimated age of 15 years). It has green pointed oval leaves and small (2cm, about one inch) yellow trumpet shaped flowers which appear in pairs within a red outer covering. It flowers from mid-April to late June. Can anyone help?

Found ID forum after posting here and re-posted. This plant was successfully identified by several contributors (to whom many thanks) as Lonicera involucrata

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
