I think dock leaves are more spear shaped.  The ones in the pic are quite broad towards the end.

I saw a black panther about 10 years ago, in a stubble field near Grantham - it was walking past straw bales (and taller and longer than them) so no mistaking the size, and close enough for me to see it really was a big cat, not a large labrador.  


It was walking away from a livery yard, very early one late August morning - I'd always been sceptical until I saw that one.  Now I'm a believer.

It'll soon grow up again, bigger and better than ever - just make sure it gets plenty of water - drought stresses honeysuckles and when a plant is stressed they succumb to pests even more.

LF isn't a rose I know, but David Austin calls it 'a short climber'.   


As it's only in it's second year the canes may not be going to get longer this year.  When it is properly established it'll put out more canes from the base which I imagine will be longer.  


DA says it reaches ten feet, but that will be referring to a well grown rose several years old.
