I always enjoy my Japanese honeysuckle. It started out as a small stick vine. And now it covers about a seven foot section of my fence. And it smells wonderful. The sweet scent always takes me back to my childhood. And it comes is many different colors.
This plant produces berries when the blooms are gone. The berries are poisonous to children. So it is considered both invasive and poisonous. But I continue to enjoy it in my yard. The birds enjoy the blooms and the berries. Especially the hummingbirds.
Japanese honeysuckle is not only native to Japan but also to Korea and China. Due to its invasive nature, it is also found widely in eastern North America, having escaped from home gardens into the wild. And now you know the rest of the story.
