Unknown nursery material
« on: June 13, 2011, 10:28 AM »
I picked this up from a nursery that was closing shop about 4 years ago.  It limped along for two years before I had the nerve to repot it out of the brick of muck it was growing in and it finally took off last year.  It had some yellow blooms this spring that I didn't get photographed.  The top is fairly mucked up still and needs to lose at least one branch but I don't have it sorted out in my head yet.

The foliage looks a lot like crape myrtle, tho the trunk looks nothing like crape.

Can you describe the flowers? Size, shape, single/cluster, how many petals, fragrance, where they formed, etc?

I was thinking possibly honeysuckle also but I have another unkown one that I'm thinking honeysuckle also, so I probably just have that stuck on the brain. 

The flowers were creamy yellow, trumpet shaped though the ends never opened up like most honeysuckle I've seen, about an inch long, formed on the ends of new extension growth and formed in pairs opposite each other.
