No aphids on my 'Cedar Lane'! Just wished it flowered longer. It's the reddest one I have & doesn't continue flowering as the other sempervirens I have. Will need to cut this back after flowering since it is propped up by multiple means & wants to tip over. Although far away from where I was weeding, I kept forgetting to glance to see if any Hummers around.

I moved 'John Clayton' year before last & it also fell over some but is flowering pretty well & didn't notice any aphids on it either.

Bought 'Major Wheeler' last year but over-wintered in garage as I didn't know where to put it at the time. I think I will be making some homemade PVC cloches & combine with rebar in the "legs". These wire supports from garden centers aren't cutting it & don't have a fence.

One major wheeler has some foliage at the base and nothing up the trellis and another MW has foliage half way up the trellis but not a single flower and I can tell it has had aphids on it. I feel Im wasting my time with these two as neither flowered the last two years.

My honeysuckle is covered in aphids. I'll have to cut off a bunch of infested blooms and growth tips. Bah!
