Japanese Honeysuckle, Lonicera japonica is also a very invasive vine that is often found in some nurseries and garden centers. It has adapted to be able to survive in full sun and heavy shade. If not controlled, it will grow under and through all of your other bushes, making removal impossible. It is very adaptable to different soil types, showing that this plant is not really safe to plant much of anywhere. It too has landed itself of most everyone’s invasive species list and has worked its way onto my top 10 most invasive landscape plant list.
