I dont have much problems with loniceras.dormancy is braken in bigining of
winter,when it begins flower like in spring, but soon come cold and it fail
into dormancy again.There is a litle less of fruit in spring because of some
were destroyed by cold and frost.Doesnt matr, there is usualy some good
fruit in spring.I have it for about 40years, when you speak about Eduible
landscape or others who have it in USA first, just ask them from whoom they
got seeds.I wander if they speak truth.
