Lonicera albiflora Torr. et Gray

White Honeysuckle

A pleasing species, slightly bushy in habit with grey-green leaves.
The cream and white flowers in June and July are followed by bright oranges berries.
Native of southern of N. America; west Arkansas and Texas to Arizona and Mexico.

This is a good choice, for hot, rocky places in full sun. Once established, it needs only moderate watering, unless the summer is very dry. Its berries attract birds and have been used as an emetic and cathartic.
According to most descriptions this species has non-scented flowers, however, I perceive some scent.
