Orange Honeysuckle Love

Honeysuckle is an amazing plant.  This main honeysuckle vine in our garden has its own place and with its climbing and rambling about, it needs one to contain it.  It is prolific in flowering and growth and I keep it pruned for best show during its flowering season.  After our horrid snowstorms this past winter and it being ripped away from its 12ft post, I am redesigning and changing its look for this season.  The winds ripped off its birdhouse house and twisted the vine from its evenly spaced sides so it is a good time to give it a makeover.  Watch for our newly-designed honeysuckle garden soon in full bloom.

“Honeysuckles (Lonicera,  /lɒˈnɪsərə/;[1] syn. Caprifolium Mill.) are arching shrubs or twining vines in the family Caprifoliaceae, native to the Northern Hemisphere. There are about 180 species of honeysuckle, 100 of which occur in China; Europe and North America have only about 20 native species each. Widely known species include Lonicera periclymenum (European Honeysuckle or Woodbine), Lonicera japonica (Japanese Honeysuckle, White Honeysuckle, or Chinese Honeysuckle) and Lonicera sempervirens (Coral Honeysuckle, Trumpet Honeysuckle, or Woodbine Honeysuckle). Hummingbirds are attracted to these plants.”__Wikipedia
