Field Notes
I 52kc101 was at my home looking for invasive plants particularly the Morrow’s Honeysuckle know as (Lonicera Morrowii)because in science we had to have a home investagation. I went out on Saturday June 1st, 2013. It was 70 degrees out at 3:23 in the afternoon. I believe I found a Morrow Honeysuckle plant and I have evidence to back up my statement. Leaves • They were oval with a pointed tip with no curvy edges • They were a light color green • They were in all different sizes Flower • They were white and some yellow • They had 5 petals on each flower Stem • The plant was 31/2 feet tall • They stem was hollow in the center

Thank you and I hope I found it and thanks for getting back to me - 52kc101

Invasive honeysuckles are hard to tell apart AND they hybridize. But thanks to your awesome photo and written evidence, and the time of year that you captured the plant, I am tentatively confirming your observation. The reasons I think you got it are: the leaves look a little fuzzy (were they?), the white flowers, and the hollow stem.

I've called in reinforcements to double check my confirmation.

Thanks for posting, and awesome sketch by the way!!
