Canadian fly honeysuckle, Lonicera canadensis

Don't know why this and some other honeysuckle shrubs are named after flies. It may seem like a strange choice when trying to rehabilitate the reputation of honeysuckle. But here you go. Canadian gives us yet another flower form, with its open tubes. No nasty vines or invasive habits here. This head high shrub is a woodland plant in CT, GA, IA, IL, IN(X), MA, MD(E), ME, MI, MN, NC, NH, NJ(E), NY, OH, PA, TN(S), VA, VT, WI, WV, NB, NS, ON, PE, and QC. Mackaniac Co MI, 5/17/19.
