Honeysuckle

I love Honeysuckle. It lasts in our area (Pennsylvania) from late spring to early autumn, unlike other flowering plants that have short seasons. I love the vines, and the patterns that they make as they grow.

I love the way they smell, and they seem to be very happy plants.

Herbalists use them for fevers, infections, and more.  You can see more details here.

The borders of our yard on the side and back are “wild”, and we have natural vegetation and visits from deer, fox, squirrels, rabbits, and tons of birds.

Many people in our area consider Honeysuckle an invasive vine, and the state has published this warning material about it.

People sure do see things differently.  LOL

Have a great week,

Sally

  1. I planted a honeysuckle bush at our church last year. It only had a few blooms this year, but considering how bitter our winter was (a week of temps less than -30 and five weeks below zero) that I’m just happy it came back this year.
