Orange Honeysuckle begins to bloom around Darrington in Mid-May. You will see the vines with bright orange flowers climbing Douglas Fir along the edges of the forestland where areas have been logged and along roads. Where you find Orange Honeysuckle growing, you will very likely also see humming birds and Swallowtail Butterflies as it is one of their favorite foods.
