Identify bush in my yard

Asked May 1, 2018, 11:12 AM EDT

Hello! I was wondering if you can identify this bush (sort of a bush) growing under my cypress tree. At first I was afraid it was poison sumac, but I don't think that now. The flowers sort of look like honeysuckle, but this isn't a vine. I appreciate your help :-) Donna

It looks like it is Amur Honeysuckle (Lonicera maackii). It's listed as an invasive species, so we don't recommend cultivating it in the landscape. I've included a link with additional information.
