The Story


The leaves are opposite, oval, and often slightly fused at the base. The plant can reach a height of 15 to 20 feet.


The tubular, sweet-scented flowers are typically in shades of white, cream, or pink, and they bloom in clusters during late spring and early summer. The flowers are attractive to pollinators like bees and butterflies. After flowering, Lonicera periclymenum produces small, red or orange berries. While they are not typically consumed by humans, they are enjoyed by birds.
