Lonicera reticulata

Common name: Yellow Honeysuckle

Native plant

A native honeysuckle that cannot make up its mind if it is a shrub or a vine. Yellow blooms are produced at the end of May. The red fruit in August is great for floral arrangements. Lonicera grows in normal garden soil but requires 1/2 day of sun to do well. An abundance of seed is produced, but in 15 years I have had only 3 spontaneous plants.
