    Nothing beats the scent of Japanese Honeysuckle when it is in bloom. It's wonderful! It reminds me of summer nights when I was a child. Japanese Honeysuckle does seem to be very prone to powdery mildew, but that does not slow down the blooming.

    This can be a killer plant. I have one in my back yard that started to choke out my roses by the vines winding around the canes. Smells wonderful, so is worth it. Evergreen even in my zone (5). Needs a heavy support structure as it can get HUGE.
