I have this vine growing along my pond. Can anyone tell what this is? is it a weed? I don't think it flowers.

I think it's Japanese honeysuckle.

That's what it looked like to me, also!

Perhaps you have just not seen them yet. I agree it is honeysuckle.

ok cool. so reading about this, this is a very invasive weed? and I should not keep it? I don't mind how it looks now, but if it starts spreading I probably won't like it...

Not all honeysuckle is invasive. Here Japanese Honeysuckle is a real problem, but your conditions are very different.

Very invasive in the Southern states.you might want to check with your local extension office to see if it's invasive there.

Japanese Honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica is not a good plant anywhere in eastern North America.

If you like what Lonicera sp. vines look like, find yourself a Red Honeysuckle (Lonicera sempervirens) - a great native vine that hosts hummingbirds.

I feel a trigger coming on.

No one would ever plant Cornus florida then, too. Fragrance is but one element of beauty and reward in gardening, as well as the contributions these plants can make outside our human sphere to our fellow flora and fauna.

Gardening in the greater NYC area, sj6x has innumerable choices of non-invasive fragrant species to grow as accompaniment in the symphony that is a garden. Blooming with Red Honeysuckle could be such sweet-smelling stalwarts as Syringa vulgaris, Viburnum carlesii and its many hybrid offspring, and so many in the Paeonia clan. I'm sure everyone contributing here could suggest additional bouquets.

Yes, there are places where exotic species do not invade and extinguish native flora. But where they do, I say there is not a good reason - despite fragrance, floriferousness, fruiting, nor fall color - to continue to promulgate their use and the irreparable damage they do to the world around them.

John, I agree. I felt the trigger, too. I have spent too many years digging out Japanese honeysuckle....
