HONEYSUCKLE: The genus Lonicera contains more than 200 species worldwide and is distributed in temperate and subtropical regions of North America, Europe, North
Africa, and Asia. Most of the species are small trees or shrubs. Honeysuckle is cultivated in private gardens and in cities as an ornamental because of its large, fragrant flowers and brilliant red fruits.
Large creamy-yellow fragrant flowers. Blooms July thru October. Attracts hummingbirds. Prune and tie stems in early spring. Remove all dead and weak stems, and trim the remaining stems 5-8 inches to where a strong pair of leaf buds appear. Remaining stems should be tied in a position that gives sufficient space for new growth. Height 6-7 feet.
