Mountain or Georgia Bush Honeysuckle is a selection of our native Bush Honeysuckle, a small shrub endemic to our southern Appalachians. This low, spreading shrub (3-4’h x 3-5’w) with an arching habit grows well in full sun to part shade at lower elevations like our Piedmont as well as in the mountains. The foliage emerges with a burgundy tint turning to green, and then becoming purplish in the Fall. From June to August, branches are topped by clusters of bright, lemony-yellow tubular flowers which contrast well against the bronze-tinted foliage, and which attract bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. Spreads by rhizomes. This plant is considered “somewhat threatened” (Nature Conservancy).
