Like most plants Honeysuckle has a variety of species, meaning there are a couple of different looks and also colours. Honeysuckle is a tall flowering plant. This is what attracts hummingbirds. It is not only sweet but their bird beaks have to dig into the plant to get down into the area that the nectar resides. The leaves are opposite meaning they are displayed on the stem on opposite sides going up. The leaves are simple and oval in shape. The flower is typically one to 10 cm tall, with a bell-shaped flower.
The plants can have fruit with red, blue or black berries. The seeds and berries are usually mildly poisonous. There are a few species with edible berries. This plant is characterised with a bell-shaped flower that will turn out on some of the petals opening up for the 'stringy' like flowering part that sits in the middle of the plant. It is like a string with a little end cape. There are usually three to four petals per flower and about five to six 'string' like parts.
Honeysuckle can be orange, pink, white or yellow depending on the species, its location, and whether it was grown wild or not. Honeysuckle is considered a Japanese plant. It can be used to grow over arbours or as a bush type plant based on species type. The plant is definitely tropical in origins and able to grow in warm, raining climates with a lot of humidity. Honeysuckle is a popular plant, sold in stores as of late, given its unique characteristics. When the plants grow berries they are on the leaves and not the flowering section of the plant, so you could have three or four bunches of berries per leaf structure.
