This looks more like L maackii to me, which has more shiny leaves that taper at both ends. Morow's typically had a dull dark green rounded leaf and is less common. Our most common species is yet another, L tatarica, which looks similar to this L maackii, but its leaf is not as shiny and only tapers at the tip, not the base.

Rob-Thanks! Wasn't really sure which honeysuckle it was. We're treating invasives at HH, and that was one of the ones listed in the invasive ID handbook.
