Orange honeysuckle is a colorful deciduous vine that is highly attractive to hummingbirds, butterflies and other pollinators. The orange, trumpet shaped flowers a very showy in spring, and turn into orange-red berries in the fall. With a fence, arbor, shrub or tree as support, orange honeysuckle will grow as a vine, but without something to climb up it will grow as a groundcover or shrub form. It is a larval host plant for numerous butterfly and moth species. Orange honeysuckle prefers to grow in sun to part shade, with moderately moist soil. In hot, sunny locations at valley bottom, it may grow best in full shade.
Lonicera ciliosa seed packets contain 1/4 teaspoon of seed.
