The attractive looking Twinberry (Lonicera involucrata) is a honeysuckle that can be found throughout British Columbia and across Canada with exception to the Yukon. Over the years it has had a variety of colloquial uses from hair dye and dandruff treatment to medicines for STD’s, aches and pains and even eye sores. Today though it is considered mildly toxic, so should not be eaten. The shrub is loved by wildlife and provides a host of uses including leaf cover for butterfly larvae, nectar for hummingbirds and butterflies, shelter for small birds, food for ungulates and those succulent twin black berries which pop out in late July and August are loved by bears. Aka: Twinberry Honeysuckle.
