Decidedly less common than the rose, the honeysuckle is the second flower tied to the month of June. This delicate flower features an interesting arrangement of petals that protrude from a central point, creating a starburst effect. Like the rose, honeysuckles grow on bushes or vines. Because of their interesting petal arrangement and delicate nature, honeysuckles are not commonly found in cut arrangements; however, you can present your recipient with a potted honeysuckle as an alternative to a fresh bouquet.

All varieties of honeysuckle plant are associated with love and devotion. Because of this, this flower is a wise choice for giving to someone to whom you would like to express your lasting dedication.
