The exotic plant threatens to take over the St. Louis area, but late autumn is one of the best times to stop it.



St. Louis, Mo.—Everything green is not necessarily good. That especially holds true for bush honeysuckle (Lonicera maackii). Homeowners who have seen it take over their yards know firsthand the challenges that Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) land managers face to keep the dreaded invasive plant from monopolizing our native habitats. The plant is particularly a problem in the St. Louis region.
The good news is bush honeysuckle's advantage can also be its Achilles heel because now is the best time to fight it.
