In the "Secret Language of Flowers", honeysuckle represents being "united in love" and devotion because of the flower's clinging nature.

Honeysuckle appears symbolically in literature. In Marie de France's book "Chevrefoil," honeysuckle and hazel together represent the ill-fated lovers Tristan and Isolde. William Faulkner used the aroma of honeysuckle to signify sex, and Robert Frost speaks of honeysuckle in "To Earthward" as a symbol of intense love.

Meanings

In Scotland, woodbine appears in wedding ceremonies to represent the love that clings without harming anyone. Among the French, giving honeysuckle to a partner represents generous love, and in China dreaming of honeysuckle means passion. In European lore, a honeysuckle blossoming near your home foretells a wedding within one year.

Art

Paul Rubens, a Baroque painter, created a painting called the Honeysuckle Bower in the 1600s, honoring his marriage to Isabella Brant. Here, the couple sits together in a bower surrounded by honeysuckle as a symbol of undying love.
