Check out that link above for more on the native honeysuckle but for the rest of this post I'll just show you some pretty pictures! Any objections? No? Good! (You really didn't have a choice anyway ;))
This variety is called 'Alabama Crimson'. They really need to hybdridize and orange variety so Tennessee gardeners can plant the 'Orange Vol'.
It's spring, the storms are done for the week, and things are looking up!
Here is a cropped picture from the last post. If you look toward the back of the picture you'll see another honeysuckle. This one isn't a named variety and came forma cutting from my parent's honeysuckle plant.
Red honeysuckle definitely dazzles this time of year in the garden! And the hummingbirds love it too!
