Hi All- I originally picked this from a neighbor's plant growing through the cracks in my fence to use as foliage in a flower arrangement. A week later, it had grown roots in the water! So now it's in soil and growing like... a weed. But I hope it's not! I've kept my eye open all around the neighborhood and different garden centres but I've seen nothing like it yet. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Do the leaves smell if you rub them and does it have any sort of flower?

Liz, would it be possible to get a pic from the other side of the fence?
Possibly a couple to show the whole plant and one of the flowers.

Thank you all so much, I am delighted! Very Happy Very Happy I absolutely adore honeysuckle but don't have any of my own yet. I had another look through our neighbor's fence and there are a few things there (she is another keen gardener) and sure enough- some honeysuckle.
The leaves don't smell right now, but I'm hoping that's because these little offshoots are pretty young and furry right now.
