    Do you know of a similar document available for B.C. regarding Invasive Exotic Species?

    Thank you for info.

    I wonder what that really means to me. I am a little confused because they are planned by the city near streets.

    I was going to buy them if I can, and plant them in my backyard.
    Is it really bad idea in this circumstance?

    Thank you in advance

    I'd avoid it - and I'm not certain why the city would be planting those - perhaps they are a closely related species? City of Toronto Parks and Rec recommends avoiding them, too: Controlling Invasive Plants

    That being said, there are many species of honeysuckles that aren't invasive. A responsible nursery can help guide you to finding one that is right for you and for the native plants and animals in your area (note that it doesn't necessarily have to be a native honeysuckle, but one that won't impact the local flora and fauna negatively).
