Hairy Honeysuckle

Lonicera hispidula

Characteristic pink, tubular honeysuckle flowers adorn this hairy plant that will grow as a short shrub, climbing vine or loose groundcover. The flowers, which bloom spring to mid-summer, attract hummingbirds, and the bright red berries, which are present from late summer to fall, attract other birds.
