Q:

What is the name of a climbing vine with orange flowers similar to honeysuckle?

A:

There is a variety of honeysuckle that produces orange flowers, called the western trumpet honeysuckle or simply just orange honeysuckle (Lonicera ciliosa). This flowering vine can reach a height of 23 feet, has a grayish bark and has elliptical bright green leaves.

The orange honeysuckle grows fast. It does not need much care other than watering and pruning once in a while to keep its growth in check.

The orange honeysuckle produces nectar, making it attractive to hummingbirds and butterflies.

    How can I kill honeysuckle?

    A:

    You can kill a honeysuckle plant by pulling it out yourself, cutting them, or in dire cases of invasions, by using herbicides. The first suggestion works only for young plants as most honeysuckle varieties have shallow root systems. Cutting them may not work if you're not diligent at it because it may just grow back days after being severed while using herbicides has its disadvantages as well.
