honeysuckle

Asked May 11, 2015, 4:20 PM EDT

This came up in my front yard. I thought I planted it but the bigger it got the more I think it may be the invasive bush honeysuckle. I attached photos.

You are correct--it is Asian bush honeysuckle and it should be removed.

I purchased this at a native plant sale as Diervilla lonicera. Found the tag while digging it out. Probably still parts left that will come up next year so I want to ask: Are you sure it is the asian?

You can take a sample to your local Penn State Extension and ask for it to be identified.
