Hello Daryl
Your mention of Lonicera fragrantissima is about the 3rd or 4th time the 
name has come up of late. What can you tell be about this one? Personal 
experience over how long a period of time? Working on my real winter 
bloomers for the garden.... again
    If you are not growing the Helleborus foetidus you are missing a good 
bet. In bud since mid December, some are opening now. Went untouched by our 
snow and cold snap. Among the best of the best in the foliage department. 
Long narrow serrated leaves on stalks about 2 feet in height ... sometimes 
more. About that or a bit more in width. Blooms are green bells sometimes 
rimed in bronze. Winter foliage is almost olive-black with a sheen and the 
blooms stalk is bright yellow-green. Cool!
