Description: This uncommon honeysuckle is more prevalent on the western slopes, but is occasionally spotted on the eastern side of the divide. Like other honeysuckles, the leaves are opposite, but in this case they have not stalk. Instead the leaves tightly clasp the stem. The margin is smooth, tapering to a rounded point. The leaves are 4-12 cm long. The flowers vary in colour. Beginning yellow to orange, the colour deepens to purple as they fade. The flowers are tubular and showy, 12-18 mm long. They grow in small clusters from the centre of the terminal set of two leaves. These terminal leaves seem to be cemented together to form a single leaf with points on both ends. Cradled within this leafy cup with be a cluster of orange-red berries.
