This is also very invasive. Two years of in and out of the hospital and my yard has been taken over by it. Since I am on SS, I cannot afford to hire someone to cut and dispose of it. Now that doctors have released me to do yard work, I am in for an uphill battle against it. Cuivre river park has been spending at least $7000.00 per year to eradicate it for at least 4 years. Also, it does not have a good scent and I do not see butterflies, bees anywhere near it.

Not all honeysuckle is invasive. We've been pulling out invasive Japanese honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica) and have planted two types of native honeysuckle (Lonicera sempervirens).
