Hmm - honeysuckle don't like dry conditions - they need to have their roots in cool damp soil otherwise they're liable to succumb to powdery mildew - but they do need it to be well-drained - there's a difference.
I think the watering has been overdone - particularly as it's newly planted and just getting it's roots going. Also, the weather has hardly been drought-like
Also I would have planted it further away from the base of the wall - at least a foot to eighteen inches, then train it back towards the wall. The base of a wall can be very dry - not only will it be in a rain-shadow but the foundations act like a sponge.
If the honeysuckle is planted further away from the wall it'll be less dependent upon being watered manually.
