Lonicera sempervirens Linnaeus. Coral Honeysuckle, Trumpet Honeysuckle. Phen: Mar-Jul (and sporadically to Nov); Jul-Sep. Hab: Dry forests and woodlands, maritime forests. Dist: CT to OH and OK, south to c. peninsular FL and TX; and more widely distributed as an escape from cultivation.

Origin/Endemic status: Native

Other Comments: Var. hirsutula has sometimes been maintained, differing from var. sempervirens in its ciliate leaf margins, pubescent upper leaf surfaces, sometimes glandular hypanthia and stems (vs. glabrous); it is doubtful that these distinctions are taxonomically meaningful.
