Honeysuckle 'Serotina'

I've tried a couple of times to grow them in a pot and after the first 2 yrs have been very disapointed with the result and have moved them to open ground. the roots fill the pot very quickly

Here I am complaining again.

Plant identification

definately not a Brugmansia. the first name I thought of was Cuphea but it's not that.

I've come across it before and can't remember the name

I always plant the graft below ground . what I've noticed is that I never have a problem with suckers. I did when I planted them above ground

Chiltern seeds sell 2 varieties of seed. I good coloured blue is Blue Ensign and I think there is a very nice white but you'd have to buy these as plants

I've also taken out some Pyracanthas and ornamental quince. I'm trying to grow person friendly shrubs but definately can't do without my roses. Pyracantha should have a health and safety warning on them

pot growing

I don't see why not. this particular one likes to be kept damp but well drained and does well in a slightly shady spot. I've started collecting Euphorbias as there is one for every situation in the garden.  

Phygelius - growing question

I've just dug one out. As you said it spreads all over and I had very few flowers. maybe you should try punkdocs method and confine it to a pot. Some plants prefer to have their roots constricted.
