I love this plant. My granny used to grow it 50 years ago and more. It is called 'Pheasant Berry' and 'Himalayan Honeysuckle' but my granny used to called it, wait for it ...... 'The Turkey snot tree', That always gets a laugh from students.

I have this one in my garden too, it hasn't done too well this year though, perhaps it will improve next year.
