Japanese Honeysuckle

Lonicera japonica


Japanese Honeysuckle is an evergreen woody vine that may reach 80 feet in length. The leaves are opposite and elliptically shaped. The tan vine may reach a thickness of 2 inches in diameter. Fragrant, white or pale yellow tubular flowers appear in April to August. Spherical, black glossy berries containing 2 to 3 seeds mature from June to March.


Honeysuckle is a common invasive plant in the Southeast. The shade tolerant vine occurs along field edges, right-of-ways, under dense canopies, and high in canopies. This invasive vine colonizes by prolific vine growth and seeds that are spread by birds.
