@griffinkate bugger. I know this, but braincell won't engage. Will boost.
@griffinkate the fruit reminds me a lot of rosehip. But I don't think they cluster quite like that. May still be related though?
@griffinkate this is a Good Plant, very round and jewel toned, 10/10 thank you for posting
@griffinkate a pretty red and spiky one
(I’ll boost to help you get a useful reply)
@griffinkate is it some cultivated variety of Himalayan Honeysuckle? It’s considered a weed here in NZ but a desirable garden plant in the UK…
@GwenfarsGarden @dubh Conversely, I couldn't believe it when I went to Spain and couldn't buy fresh mint anywhere. Mint plants and packs of fresh mint in the shops are just not a thing there. My MIL who lives there insists it's because "mint grows as a weed here" so they won't sell it as a herb. So because it's a "too common" it's actually really rare and hard to get hold of?!
@griffinkate @GwenfarsGarden ha ha Agapanthus is my bane, it grows so thickly and it will actually displace grass if given a chance! Plus I’m mildly allergic to the sap, so chopping it out gets pretty annoying. Meanwhile I’ve seen the Himalayan Honeysuckle crowd everything out on the forest margins, it’s not the worst weed of wild places that we have but it’s not good.
@dubh Ooh, that looks like it! Thank you!
@griffinkate could it be this one?
@maru Yes! Thank you. Someone else said the same thing so I think you're both right.
