The Japanese Honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica) originated in Eastern Asia and was imported to the United States in the nineteenth century, with the intention of using it for ground cover. Currently, it thrives all across the southern and eastern states. This honeysuckle has not adapted to the northern states because it cannot handle the harshness of northern winters. In fact, it cannot handle any cold well.
The Japanese Honeysuckle can be rather vicious to other plants, from little shrubs to plants as large as small trees. Its shade can be downright deadly for plants that grow where this honeysuckle chooses to live. If the plants it starves of sunlight do not die, they will still not grow to their full potential and may lose their reproductive ability.
