Lonicera Forest

I’m looking after this one for a few weeks while Josh is away on holiday. It a Lonicera Forest collected many years ago from a hedge. Trunks are where they were in the hedge, nothing adjusted. I love the little bushes growing at the base of the trees, they add to the scale of the whole image. It’s a little pom-pom in places but it’s hard to do anything else with Lonicera on this scale. It breaks your heart with growth. Rather Josh than me 🙂

and with me for scale in case you thought it was shohin size!

Plant ID?

I was given this by my friend Robert. I haven’t a clue what it is. Any ideas? I’m told it dies after flowering and you have to collect the seed to propagate for next year.
