Lonicera dioica Linnaeus. Limber Honeysuckle. Phen: Jun-Aug; Aug-Sep. Hab: Seepages, bogs, rocky woods, shrubby mountain bogs at high elevations, rocky ridgetop thickets over amphibolite. Dist: MA and QC west to WI, south to NJ, NC, and IN.

Origin/Endemic status: Native

Taxonomy Comments: Varieties or species have sometimes been maintained based on minor variation of pubescence; it is unlikely that these are taxonomically meaningful. Var. orientalis has the lower leaf surfaces, hypanthium, and style hairy (vs. glabrous or nearly so in var. dioica).
