honeysuckle

honeysuckle 001honeysuckle 002This red honeysuckle vine is one of my favorite late-Spring flowers.  The hummingbirds like it, too.  Given the right amount of sunlight, it will continue blooming for the rest of the year, although  perhaps not as exuberantly as the first blooms in May.honeysuckle 007  The white honeysuckle bush is nice, too, although it’s not one of my favorites because the flowers last only a day or two before turning a sort of dirty yellow color and the plant tends to send up volunteers everywhere so it’s a little hard to control.  I admit, though, that it does have a nicer fragrance than the colored varieties.
