The frugal potter

Although quite a few of our potted plants on the deck and front porch are annuals, we've started to think more frugally, and fill our pots with perennials that can be planted in the gardens later. We enjoyed this Japanese Honeysuckle in a pot all summer 2006. It never had more than two or three blooms, but in the fall we planted it outside the fence on the southeast side of the yard. It's rewarded us by climbing up (and inside) the fence, scenting the air with multiple blooms and making a lush green backdrop for the other things planted there. We've considered planting Honeysuckle beside the garden shed and letting it cover the shed like ivy, but we've heard it can become invasive, so still thinking on that.
