Product Description

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. In spring, its foliage emerges looking like any other honeysuckle, but as it gets going and develops flower buds, unique blue-white, saucer-shaped bracts form around them, and tubular yellow flowers emerge from the center. They have a light scent and do attract pollinators, including hummingbirds, but it's the bracts that make everyone ask, what is that?! They look quite a bit like a eucalyptus, and remain effective on the plant until it defoliates in autumn. Flowers fade to reveal glistening red berries in each bract, but not to worry - this North American native species is not invasive and won't make a nuisance of itself.
