Today I transplanted this honeysuckle into a more acceptable pot. It isn't the best choice, but in this case it was the only choice since I didn't have any others that were the right size. This tree has been in training about three years.

Nice tree ya got there. This is mine.Pic is from August .This will be my first attempt with honeysuckles. Just waiting to repot it. Might have three seperate trunks in there. Cold might have darkened the leaves this winter, I thinned it out a little and it looks like its slowly getting some color back.Not sure what I will do with it yet. I might do a group planting. Good luck with yours.

I like the movement of the trunk of the tree on the left. In my opinion the trees look a bit bushy and in need of a serious chop. The tree in my photo was similar in thickness to your trees (as far as I can tell) but I cut it back to only one leader. These trees grow fast, I look forward to seeing the progression of your tree throughout the summer.
