My little shohin Lonicera has made me a bit of a fan of the species. This plant is incredibly hardy, fast growing, and can be worked on and even re-potted at just about any time of year. They are also easily obtained, being a common garden and landscape plant. Last Autumn I collected this large clump form some local waste ground. It immediately began to grow and slowly continued all Winter. This Summer brought about some vigorous growth and I have now begun the clip and grow method that I will use to develop the crown, just as I did with my smaller tree.
