Honeysuckle dwarf bush
Pollinator value: Very High. Larval host to Harris' Three Spot and other moth larvae; hummingbirds, butterflies, moths, beetles, native bees.
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 grow in bunches and bloom all summer.
Its drought-tolerance root system makes dwarf honeysuckle a good choice for erision control. It also spreads, forming thickets and making it a great choice for a hedge or slope.
