Honeysuckle gets its name from their sweet nectar that can be sucked right out of the flowers. They grow as shrubs or vines and there are over 20 species native to North America. Even more species have been imported as ornamental plants, some of which are invasive. They are a popular choice for landscaping around buildings and fences due to their pleasant aroma and density. In the wild you will most likely find honeysuckle on dry, wooded slopes or along creek banks. The honeysuckle plant produces pollen and nectar from April to June.
