Introducing the Tatarian Honeysuckle - a beautiful addition to any garden. Lonicera tatarica, commonly known as Tatarian honeysuckle, is a captivating species of honeysuckle native to Siberia and eastern Asia. However, it has gained popularity as a widespread introduced species and noxious weed in North America. This ornamental plant was introduced in 1752, and it has easily adapted to the continent's diverse habitats, flourishing from Alaska to California.
With a growth potential reaching up to three meters, the Tatarian honeysuckle is a bushy shrub that features oval or rounded leaves, measuring 3 to 6 centimeters in length. The inflorescence consists of pairs of white to pink to crimson red flowers, each approximately 1.5 centimeters long. The tubular flowers boast stamens and styles that elegantly protrude, adding to their unique charm. Following the blooming season, the Tatarian honeysuckle presents shiny orange or red berries, reaching up to a centimeter in width.
Although this species may be visually appealing, it is important to note that the fruits are not edible for humans. However, birds and other animals are drawn to the plant, spreading its seeds and contributing to its ability to form thickets and propagate easily.
