Pink honeysuckle?

May 4th, 2010

I've never seen this before.


  1. Mom says:

    There are several pink vining honeysuckles, but this one looks shrubby. Was it wild or in a cultivated area?

  2. Mom says:

    I’m sorry to say that this very pretty plant is probably pink tatarian honeysuckle (Lonicera tatarica), a non-native that is invasive in Ohio (and probanly Indiana).

  3. Terry Parker says:

    Look for them in Minnesota, Matt. I have a yellow one and a pink one in my yard. Apparently, they are not invasive here in the north. Hmmm… I don’t think they sell these in the garden centers though, so perhaps a wild cultivar. IDK, haven’t looked it up.

    You were in the StarTribune today and I am enjoying your trip blog. Keep it up!
