This is a honeysuckle I collected in 2004 or 2005 in Orange County, NY.  These things take awhile to ramify. On top of that, they have an annoying habit of shedding branches at the slightest provocation. 

This one is coming along. Here it is in Flower  a couple of weeks ago, and one photo after an early styling obviously influenced by Nick Lenz' larches.

I have been working on this tree with my customer for two years now.  It still needs to ramify more but starting to look good. :D
