Lonicera sempervirens 'Magnifica'
Evergreen vine native to the southeastern US, twining around supports to reach heights up to 15 feet. Bicolored orange-and-yellow flowers appear in late spring. Unlike some honeysuckles, the flowers aren't fragrant, but they do attract hummingbirds and butterflies. The red berries that follow in late summer and fall are popular with birds. So we planted ours at the base of a column supporting our patio cover, hoping to attract winged friends close to our living quarters. It will receive sun for the first half of the day there – hopefully that's enough to entice it to produce lots of flowers.
