The honeysuckle is shedding the batch of flowers that were present when I got it from the nursery. The orange flower bodies fall off, leaving the inner portion of the plant. Instead of new flowers coming up, though, I see pods much like green beans. I assume that these are the seeds through which the plant will propagate. New leaves appear to be coming out; these are light green whereas the established leaves are dark green, slightly glossy, and healthy-looking.
The question: Is the blooming season for this plant over already or can I expect some more flowers over the summer? The hummingbirds prefer the honeysuckle to the fuchsia and the hibiscus is only now showing signs of flowering.
I water every two to three days, about 1/2 gallon into the berm around the plant. The soil is moist; neither sopping nor dry. There are slow-release fertilizer pellets around the base of the plant, as well.
My online research shows that plant care depends a lot on location, hence the question to this group.
