Plant Highlights

This plant is vine-like and sprawls on the ground or can be trained to climb. It has beautiful cream, honeysuckleflowers that are followed by edible orange berries. Its a great plant to choose for a fence, to wind up tree trunks or to use as an open groundcover on slopes or under oaks. The birds will love the supply of berries, but although listed as edible, they are bitter and best left for the birds to enjoy!
