I saw your posting from this past August--I am trying to get that ubiquitous Japanese honeysuckle that is ostensibly growing along all the Carolina roadsides and is termed an "invasive pest"--we grew it intentionally in PA but since moving here 6 years ago I can find no source for it--I do not want to get orange, pink, red, or any other color than cream-colored yellow--these plants have very faint aromas; on the other hand, the plants with the sweetest and most pungent aroma and the ones we cannot find around here--the cream-colored or yellow variety is what we always had planted around our enclosed porches in PA and yes they grew vigorously (to the point that some folks called it "Junior Kudzu"--so be it--we loved it--we always had hummingbirds at our porches and tons of honey bees that also pollinated our gardens--although retired, we still garden very actively and are still in search of the elusive, ubiquitous (oxymoron?) honeysuckle--any help will be very graciously received--where can I get some assuming they are so abundant?--I have been writing and calling seed companies and e-mailing letters to "Net" sites, all unsuccessfully so far!
