Lonciera subspicata subspicata--Bush Honeysuckle
The pale yellow flower on this California native are pretty, but it is the red berries in fall that are really special. This vining plant likes to grow up through a studier bush like manzanita or ceanothus. Like a lot of vines, it prefers its roots in the shade, and its leaves in the sun. In bloom now at the UC Botanical Garden.
