Plant Description

Here's a rare native honeysuckle with mid to late spring flowers that are brilliant yellow/orange with a slight sweet fragrance. They occur crowded in pairs at the ends of the stems and are distinctly 2-lipped with petals flared and reflexed back - not tubular like Lonicera sempervirens. In late summer, it has clusters of bright red berries. The vines are not as robust as the other honeysuckles, and we have observed flowering only in mid to late spring. So give it a special place in part shade to full sun.
