Purpleflower Honeysuckle (Lonicera conjugialis)


Also known as Mountain Twinberry, Double Honeysuckle, or Wedded Honeysuckle (for the fused red berry pairs that follow it’s flowers), this native honeysuckle is rarely offered. It forms a small, erect shrub that produces charming twinned blossoms in shades of deep purple and maroon, filled with tiny white hairs. This species is found in moist forest spots, meadows, and open rocky places at higher elevation. Likes moisture and good drainage. Literature on propagation isn’t abundant, but I would recommend sowing in fall for cold stratification or refrigerating in moist medium.
