January Honeysuckle; Fragrant Honeysuckle
About This Plant
Sun/part shade; deciduous and shrublike, with fragrant bluish-green foliage and clusters of small white flowers on bare, winter branches. The fragrance is soap-like, rather than sweet.
Much of the rest of the year, this honeysuckle is easily overlooked. It prefers moisture and a bit of shade, but can grow in understory where soils are deep enough.
Winter honeysuckle has been known to spread and become invasive when birds eat the berries.
