Popular Plant CA Native | Pacific Nurseries
CA Native
As a California native plant, Lonicera hispidula is a hardy twining climber that can reach up to 20′ tall. Valued for its’ ability to cover unsightly walls and vertical structures, this vine features profuse, tubular, and intensely fragrant flowers which appear in early summer. Grown at the end of stems, these abundant flowers also attract hummingbirds and other pollinators. This Lonicera prefers to have its’ roots in shade with flowering tops in full sun or very light shade. It does best in acidic, dry moist, and well-drained soil. As a deer-resistant CA native, it’s an excellent choice for covering walls, fences, trellises, and pergolas in Bay Area landscapes.

“Lonicera hispidula in a garden creates an “air show” of hummingbirds and pollinators drawn to the juicy clusters of sun-glowing, red berries. We love planting this CA native honeysuckle as a WIN-WIN because you’ve done a good deed for both the local ecology and for your client.”
