Answer: Lonicera periclymenum, sometimes called Woodbine, is not at all the same plant as the Japanese honeysuckle or L. japonica. They are both honeysuckles and share the vining characteristic, the flower shape, and some foliage similarities, but they are not the same plant. The Japanese honeysuckle is the rampant grower with highly fragrant pale blooms that has been identified as an invasice exotic in many areas. I hope this answers your question.
