Unlike our other two native honeysuckles in NW Oregon, Lonicera involucrata is a freestanding shrub rather than a climbing or cascading vine. Twinberry Honeysuckle is widespread in Western North America and ranges further East in Canada.

In the wild it is found in moist areas such as wetlands or riparian habitats. However, it is adaptable and an excellent performer in the garden where it can withstand some drought once established but performs best with occasional summer water. Yellow tubular flowers bloom in early summer and will attract hummingbirds. After flowering a pair of decorative black berries appear at each flower site. The berries may be mildly toxic if eaten in large quantities and are unpalatable, they are best left to native birds which love them including Crows, Waxwings, Thrushes, Juncos and more.
