This honeysuckle is found on the edges of dry coniferous forests. It often climbs 15-20 feet up the trunk of a tree. The showy orange to scarlet flower is almost exclusively pollinated by the Rufous Hummingbird. The Orange Honeysuckle does not emit a fragrance which is used by most flowers to attract insects for pollination.
