I received this plant in Spring, now at the end of the season, one of the branches has grown 4' produced several flowers. It is not as fragrant as I thought it would be, (hoping that is just a first year thing). It has now produced its berries, several. I must say that was a surprise, I did not realize it would have berries. My mom had a yellow honeysuckle and I don't remember any berries! Anyhow, I am quite pleased by this little surprise! I have not tried to eat one (yet) as I did some exploring see this is pretty typical of Honeysuckle and appears as though this one IS edible! double surprise! Can't wait to see what it will do next year!
