One of only a handful of native vines in the Klamath-Siskiyou, pink honeysuckle is very attractive when grown ornamentally on a trellis or fence in the garden settling. Pink honeysuckle can climb, scramble or sprawl. It will vine up into trees or sprawl along the forest or woodland floor as a groundcover. When trained to climb the showy, large, pink honeysuckle flowers stand out and are easier for the many pollinators that love honeysuckles to forage or nectar on. Bees, butterflies, hummingbirds and moths use honeysuckle flowers, and in the fall when the flowers turn to bright red berries, the birds move in to munch on the berries. An important wildlife species, pink honeysuckle deserves more recognition as an adaptable and easy to grow native vine that is drought tolerant, deer tolerant, Blooms May-June and is deciduous in winter.
