Russian Almond
Twining Honeysuckle

Russian Almond is a low maintenance, short, slightly suckering shrub. It is covered with attractive, bright pink flowers in early spring before its foliage emerges.

This hardy species forms dense thickets attracts wildlife. Russian Almond prefers full sun and well-drained soils, but can tolerate moist soils.

The nuts it produces are quite attractive but very small. They are bitter and possibly toxic in large quantities.

Twining Honeysuckle is a vine native to the forests of Canada and the United States.

It can often be found winding up the bark of large trees or spreading out as a ground cover where no supports are present. You will love the attractive, yellow-orange flowers with pink centers which turn into red, inedible berries.

Consider Twining Honeysuckle when trying to achieve a natural, spreading, unkempt look for your garden.
