(The Honeysuckle Family)
A family of woody vines, shrubs, and some herbs, Caprifoliaceae members have opposite leaves. These leaves can be simple or compound and the flowers are generally 5-merous. Many, but not all of these plants fall into 2 categories. First are those with entire leaf margins and bilabiate flowers which tend to produce berries, and second those with toothed leaf margins and multiple flowers in a terminal cyme which form into drupe type fruits. Much of the flowers that plants in this family produce have a heavy and sweet aroma.
Plants in Family:
|Lonicera japonica||Sambucus canadensis||Viburnum dentatum||Viburnum lentago|
