Honeysuckle (Family Caprifoliaceae)

 

The Caprifoliaceae or Honeysuckle Family consists of about 800

dicotyledonous flowering plants. They are mostly shrubs and vines,

rarely herbs, including some ornamental garden plants in temperate

regions.

 

The Caprifoliaceae have a nearly cosmopolitan distribution; centres

of diversity are found in eastern North America and eastern Asia,

while they are absent in tropical and southern Africa.

 

Several genera of Caprifoliaceae are cultivated ornamental shrubs

and vines, including Lonicera, Symphoricarpos, Abelia, Leycesteria,

Linnaea, Kolkwitzia. Others are considered both an ornamental and

a noxious weed (Lonicera japonica).
