Honeysuckle is a climbing vine with glossy, bright green leaves and woody brown stems.
It will reward gardeners with clusters of flowers reliably each year. When the flowers have finished in the fall, they will be replaced with shiny berries in red or black. It requires regular watering while it is growing but becomes drought-tolerant upon maturity. Once the plant has established itself, it is solid and sturdy, but it can easily tolerate the stress of being transplanted.
It makes an ideal background plant for any medium- to large-sized garden and fits in well with those with a wild, informal theme thanks to its vigorous growth habit.
The breathtaking beauty of this plant cannot be understated. It is named for the distinctly sweet flavor of the nectar in its small, delicate flowers, which have a captivating, romantic fragrance. The aroma is so strong that it can be used to perfume an entire garden. These flowers are also beautiful to birds, bees, and wildlife such as deer and rabbits.
Finally, honeysuckle is positively superpowered in its remarkable ability to spread to unbelievable lengths in a single growing season. This hardworking vine is an excellent choice for covering fences or decorating trellises.
