Hello can anyone tell me if this is a honeysuckle? It is very scented and to know the exact name would be even better?!




Looks more like Clematis - possibly armandii - to me

Deffinatley armandii. Its evergreen Lydia, i love the leave's on this as well, i have one growing along my shed, im hoping in time it will cover it! Only thing is, its in a pot..

That's great, thank you both! I'm looking for something to cover an ugly concrete wall - I saw this in a friends garden and was hoping it would be perfect for the job!

i agree a clematis.

If it likes the conditions it will do well. Young clematis sometimes need a bit of cosseting but armandii is great when it's established itself.

Will do best against a warm sunny wall but keep the roots cool under stones or slates.
