Native Honeysuckle — Images

“Lonicera Sempervirens – Native Honeysuckle” — C.Birde, 7/16

 

Planted to tempt hummingbirds,

native honeysuckle climbs and clambers

up over the garden arch,

wriggles amongst the privet,

stretches and tumbles unrestrained

in quest of sunlight.

Scarlet success on all counts.

    • I so agree! And it smells heavenly. So many have warned me that if I were to plant honeysuckle, it would take over and devour my yard. We shall see…last summer, I planted some at the base of a garden arch, and I eagerly await the arch’s eventual swallowing-by-vine 🙂 Thank you for visiting 🙂
