yellow honeysuckle, Lonicera flava
Yesterday's rue was shot in Tecumseh, on my way home from dropping grandkids at school. This honeysuckle was also found that way, climbing up a guy wire on a phone pole. It is far out of range, probably planted, but impossible to drive by. This could be a horticultural development, but with pollinators spreading those genes around, it can get very confused outside the garden.
Yellow honeysuckle usually hangs in AL, AR, GA, IL, KS, KY, MO, MS, NC, OH, OK, SC, and TN. Cultivated, Lenawee Co MI, 6/12/19. Honeysuckle family, Caprifoliaceae.
