Did You Know…?

Lonicera japonica

This vigorous evergreen vine is found in most states of the USA either as an invited guest in many a garden or as an invasive plant. It is known best for its fragrant flowers that are initially white upon opening, but turn yellow within a day and fall from the plant within another day or so. Children sometimes pull the flowers off and suck a little sweet nectar out of the base of the flower, hence the common name of the vine. Yellow ginger plants fragrance is nearly the same, but even more intense.

The fruit is an inedible black berry, which birds readily eat, thus dispersing the seeds. The vine also roots easily wherever it contacts the soil.
