Honeysuckle, University of Saskatchewan campus, Saskatoon.



Smooth bark is soooo overrated these days!   How’s this for “interesting bark texture”?


  1. One of my honeysuckles is starting to look like that. Isn’t bark another interesting feature of shrubs? I have several shrubs in the garden which I have introduced for that feature alone.

  2. Oh my, how old do you think that honeysuckle is? I love that. I always have to pat bark of trees and shrubs a little when I have the chance…does that make me a tree hugger? I hope so ;0)

  3. Cool! The birds around here would have stripped that thing down to nothing for nest making. Plus I bet they’d like the honeysuckle berries.

I'm delighted to hear from you - thanks so much for your comments!
