They smell heavenly. Even more than their invasive qualities, honeysuckles are best known for their sweet smell and flavor. What kid hasn’t plucked a flower or two to taste the drop of nectar inside? Unfortunately, trumpet honeysuckle doesn’t have much of a scent, but some other non-invasive varieties do have that amazing fragrance. These include European honeysuckle (Lonicera periclymenum) and winter honeysuckle.
