Coral Honeysuckle

Coral Honeysuckle

A deciduous, twining, woody vine with opposite, glossy, semi-evergreen leaves and showy flowers. The clusters of tubular orange-red flowers give way to small, fleshy, orange-red berries that birds love. The flowers attract hummingbirds. This vine needs a trellis and training to climb, or can be used as a creeping ground cover in a large area. The leaves are evergreen in warmer parts of the south, but may die back in colder areas. This species is not as aggresive as the invasive Japanese Honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica).
