The honeysuckles (Lonicera spp.) are a group of approx. 110 species most of which are native in the temperate and subtropical regions of the Northern hemisphere. Several species in this genus are grown as ornamentals. Many of these originate from the European mountains or North America.

 

This is a much-branched shrub. Most commonly it grows in lush woods on slopes and around fields. The red berries are bitter and poisonous. The wood is tough, durable, and viscous.
