Plant Finder: about Lonicera involucrata

Common names

Honeysuckle, Woodbine, Twinberry

Description

Lonicera involucrata (Honeysuckle). This is a dense, bushy, deciduous shrub, with stout shoots and paired, bright mid-green leaves. It bears dark yellow, often red-suffuse flowers, in pairs from the leaf axils in late spring. They are surrounded by large green bracts that soon turn red, and are followed by glossy black berries.

Cultivation

They are fully hardy to frost tender, with a min of 5C. They are easily grown in sun or light shade, in any fertile, well drained soil. They will need regular pruning to keep them from becoming tangles. You can propagate from seeds in the autumn or spring or from cuttings in summer or late autumn. Prune out flowered wood of climbers after flowering. Prune shrubs only to remove dead shoots or restrain growth.

Interest and use

Attracts humming birds in suitable geographical locations.
