Honeysuckle flower

.
Honeysuckle is part of the Caprifoliaceae family. Originating predominantly in China, about 40 species of honeysuckle grow in Europe and North America. These species include white honeysuckle, coral honeysuckle, woodbine and trumpet honeysuckle. For bird watchers, the allure of this plant are that hummingbirds love honeysuckle nectar. Honeysuckle petals are edible and, true to the name, have a lightly sweet flavor. This sweetness also ties into the flower's symbolic value. The scientific name for honeysuckle comes from Renaissance botanist Adam Lonicer.
Native across the northern hemisphere, honeysuckle inspires many with its sweet fragrance and hardiness. The druids, Chinese herbalists and the French have all attached different meanings to this flowering vine.
Honeysuckle appears symbolically in literature. In Marie de France's book "Chevrefoil," honeysuckle and hazel together represent the ill-fated lovers Tristan and Isolde. William Faulkner used the aroma of honeysuckle to signify sex, and Robert Frost speaks of honeysuckle in "To Earthward" as a symbol of intense love.
In Scotland appears in wedding ceremonies to represent the love that clings without harming anyone. Among the French, giving honeysuckle to a partner represents generous love, and in China dreaming of honeysuckle means passion. In European lore, a honeysuckle blossoming near your home foretells a wedding within one year.
In Druidry, honeysuckle is one of the letters of the Ogham alphabet. Here the flower implied diligently staying true to your path as well as life's sweetness.
According to the Flower Society, the predominant modern sentiment attached to honeysuckle has changed from ancient times. Today, a gift of honeysuckle represents an expression of happiness.
