Plant Features: Honeysuckle

Honeysuckle is a twining or trailing woody vine, evergreen or late deciduous with smooth opposite leaves, 1 to 3 inches long. The flowers are tube-shaped, about 2″ long, white or bright yellow on the outside.

The fruits are orange red berries, about a quarter inch in diameter.

Honeysuckle is used by ruby-throated hummingbirds and butterflies and birds eat the fruits. Deer feed HEAVILY on the leaves year round and fertilization of existing honeysuckle is a great wildlife enhancing practice. Think of it as a wild food plot.
