Black Twinberry – Native Plant Spotlight

Black Twinberry (Lonicera involucrata)

Black Twinberry’s stunning green leaves and beautiful tubular, yellow flowers could be a wonderful fit for your garden. This deciduous fast-growing, shrub thrives in moist, well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade.

The name Twinberry comes from the dark, shiny berries that grow in pairs, nestled in what looks like a little red nest. These berries are eaten by small mammals, and birds, and the bright yellow flowers provide an importance source of nectar for hummingbirds, butterflies, and moths.

Pre-order black twinberry online in our Native Plant Sale and pick up this spring.
