Lonicera hispidula (Hairy Honeysuckle)

Sale price Price $12.00 Regular price

A native vine or shrub in the Caprifoliaceae family that grows in the Sierra foothills and parts of southern California, but is primarily found along the coast from San Luis Obispo County northward. It tends to grow on slopes and streambanks at elevations from seal level to 2500 feet. The tubular pink flowers are very attractive to hummingbirds. It will climb up larger shrubs or a trellis if available; otherwise it will spread out along the ground. It's an attractive vine for central coast and northern California gardens.

It does well in soils that are moist year round or dry in the summer but with minimal irrigation. Very easy to grow and a nice landscaping choice.
