Honeysuckle Only Has Leaves At Bottom Of Plant

Question From: J. Whittaker - Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Q: Hi Nancy, I live in Calgary Canada which is zone 4. My 3 year old HS only has leaves on the bottom 2 feet of the plant. It should be in full leaf by now. It performed nicely in previous years. Any ideas? Thanks.

A: Could be late frost damage. Cut the leafless stuff off down to the live wood. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
