I found several young climbing plants pulled out of pots and dumped on waste ground today. I've brought them home as they would otherwise have died - but not sure what they are? I thought maybe honeysuckle but wondered if anyone here could help? Sorry the photo is not great and there are no flowers to help solve the problem, but am grateful for any suggestions smile

That looks like it could be Clematis Amandii to me - an evergreen clematis that flowers in the winter. Lovely! Expensive too - quite a find!

Agree with Purple that it's an evergreen clematis. Ours is currently in flower and they smell divine

Wow thank you both - there is a gorgeous mature armandii near where I live, but the leaves are massive so I hadn't made the link with my plants....anyway I have half a dozen of them, no idea where I will put any of them as my yard is tiny, but I couldn't leave them (had to leave 2 or 3 behind as I just couldn't carry them all). Will have to give some away I think!

Took the plants to the little plant nursery around the corner and they have identified it as evergreen honeysuckle - Lonicera henryi. They have also taken the 4 biggest ones to pot up & sell on as I can't keep them all. Can't understand why so many were dumped, unless they were stolen?
