Honeysuckle dwarf bush
Pollinator value: Very High
A beautiful shrub for dry, shady areas, dwarf honeysuckle's dark green leaves turn shades of red and purple in the fall. Its tube-like flowers bloom all summer and attract butterflies and bees. The leaves host various caterpillar species, and the plant provides special value to bumble bees.
Its drought-tolerance root system makes dwarf honeysuckle a good choice for erision control. Makes a great hedge and good for sloping areas where it can grow and spread.
