Japanese Honeysuckle, or Lonicera Japonica, is a flowering vine that was originally introduced to North America from Eastern Asia in the early 1800s. It was first used as an ornamental plant and then additionally as a means of erosion control, and in wildlife habitats. The flowers of the Japanese Honeysuckle are fragrant and delicate blooms that turn a whitish yellow as they age. The vine spreads by twining around objects in its path, and thrives in low lying thickety areas with brush and shrubs.
