Western trumpet

Lonicera ciliosa
A nice orangey-red honeysuckle from Colquitz river park.
Lonicera ciliosa is a deciduous vine that reaches 6 meters, inhabiting woods and thickets from sea level to mid elevations. Humming birds love it and apparently people like to drink the nectar as well. I always see it draped over snowberry bushes and ocean spray.
