ID Shrub - What is it?
« on: December 31, 2010, 12:01 PM »
This is a something something that I recently cut back and placed into a pot. Three weeks ago no flowering and today, blooms! Any suggestions on ID of this little beauty?

I'd say honeysuckle. The leaves and flowers look just like a honeysuckle of mine, but mine has  red flowers. Larry

Looks to me like Tecomaria capensis or Cape honeysuckle. In the SF Bay Area, it's a reliable, robust shrub that can be big enough to make a hedge. There's a less common yellow variety that's not as unruly.
