Sacred to: unknown
Myth 1: In Greek mythology Daphnis and Chloe were lovers, but they lived far apart and only could see each other while the honeysuckle bloomed. Daphnis asked the god of love if the plant could bloom longer than a season, so they could be together longer, which is why, according to legend, honeysuckle blooms continually throughout warm weather periods.
Myth 2: In some countries, bringing the blooms of honeysuckle into the house means there is going to be a wedding within the year.
Myth 3: In Scotland honeysuckle vines were hung on barns to prevent cattle from being bewitched.
Other Notes: Honeysuckle is the symbol of love. In the language of flowers it stands for the bond of love, devoted love and fidelity, probably because of the Greek legend of Daphnis and Chloe. The fragrance is supposed to induce dreams of passion
