Native honeysuckle

One of my favorite scents on a warm summer’s day is honeysuckle. So it was a disappointment to discover that this native honeysuckle (lonicera ciliosa) which grows freely in the Dungeness Recreation Area landscape does not, alas, have a fragrance. But it’s bright, pretty, and the hummingbirds love it. That’s not bad at all.

  1. The plant is a deciduous woody vine. The leaf that the flowers come out of is a pair of leaves that fuse together to create the indented disk. It is one of the few vines native to the Pacific Northwest.
