variegated honeysuckle - Lonicera periclymenum 'Harlequin'

Three Honeysuckles

We have three regular honeysuckles in the yard and one evergreen honeysuckle. I will post pictures of the evergreen honeysuckle separately.

The purple-leaf honeysuckle is on the front of the house, and it bloomed in early June. The variegated honeysuckle and the late Dutch honeysuckle are both on the swing. The variegated honeysuckle bloomed in May, and the late Dutch honeysuckle is blooming right now (it has been blooming since June).

white variegated jasmine - Jasminum officinale 'Argenteovariegatum'

White-Variegated Jasmine

The white-variegated jasmine (Jasminum officinale ‘Argenteovariegatum’) suffered a little over the winter, but it bounced back quite nicely. The plant has the lovely jasmine scent and also has really interesting feathery foliage. These pictures are from mid-June and early July.

five-leaf aralia - Eleutherococcus sieboldianus 'Variegatus'

Eleutherococcus sieboldianus ‘Variegatus’ (Five-Leaf Aralia)

I am using the Latin name as the title of this post–and boy is it a mouthful! I have read that Eleutherococcus sieboldianus ‘Variegatus’ is sometimes called five-fingered or five-leaf aralia. It is a little bit of an obscure plant, and maybe for that reason I will categorize it as “exotic” (something that I can’t do that often). I spotted this shrub at the nursery and loved the variegated foliage and thorns (yes I like thorns for some reason). I see online that it does bloom, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen it blooming (we’ve had it two years now).
