Hall’s Honeysuckle(Lonicera japonica)忍冬或叫金銀花

Very hardy and very easy to grow, USDA Zones:4-9. In late spring it flowers white flowers with a strong sweet fragrance. Prefer full sun to partial shade location. Easy to propagate by stem cuttings or seeds. In Ontario, I found it is semi-evergreen throughout winter, which is great! It does need support to cling on. Fast growing woody vine, prune back in late fall or early winter. Its flower buds can be harvested for herb tea.

金銀花(即忍冬的花蕾)是可以用來泡茶喝,用以清熱解毒. 它花香濃郁,有甜香. 非常強健,容易栽種. 以栽種在全日照或半日照處為佳. 容易用扦插來繁殖. 老枝木質化後最好在秋末冬初時修剪以刺激春天開花和多分枝. 植株很耐寒,寒冬仍不太落葉.
