Honeysuckle for Descanso Gardens


Honeysuckle (Lonicera) is usually a climber, but some species are shrubs. There are at least 180 species growing all over the northern hemisphere. Most commonly found in local nurseries is L.japonica, which has fragrant yellow, cream or pink flowers in spring. Seeds may cause stomach ache if eaten. Some species may be invasive in Descanso.
