Lonicera. Lonicera Caprifolium, L. Honeysuckle. "American" or Italian Woodbine. (Fam. Caprifoliaceae.)—The flowers of the common honeysuckle are sometimes used in perfumery, and a syrup of the fruit has been commended in asthma. The fruit of all the species of Lonicera is said to be emetic and cathartic (Merat and De Lens), and that of L. xylosteum L. to have caused serious poisoning. (J. P. C., 4e ser., xviii, 65.)
