Honeysuckle

Honeysuckle is a hardy twining climber which is usually deciduous with oval leaves that are between 1cm and 10 cm long. Many of the species have sweetly scented symmetrical flowers that produce a sweet, edible nectar, and normally flowers are produced in clusters of two. In Autumn a red, blue or black spherical or elongated berry containing several seeds is produced and these berries are attractive to wildlife, particularly birds.
