Lonicera Caprifolium
Honeysuckle Hon"ey*suc`kle, n. [Cf. AS. hunis[=u]ge privet. See {Honey}, and {Suck}.] (Bot.) One of several species of flowering plants, much admired for their beauty, and some for their fragrance. [1913 Webster]

Note: The honeysuckles are properly species of the genus {Lonicera}; as, {Lonicera Caprifolium}, and {Lonicera Japonica}, the commonly cultivated fragrant kinds; {Lonicera Periclymenum}, the fragrant woodbine of England; {Lonicera grata}, the American woodbine, and {Lonicera sempervirens}, the red-flowered trumpet honeysuckle. The European fly honeysuckle is {Lonicera Xylosteum}; the American, {Lonicera ciliata}. The American Pinxter flower ({Azalea nudiflora}) is often called honeysuckle, or false honeysuckle. The name {Australian honeysuckle} is applied to one or more trees of the genus {Banksia}. See {French honeysuckle}, under {French}. [1913 Webster]
