Talk about planting weeds... I must say that I have better looking dogwoods in the swamps than what people have put into landscapes... its getting bad enough that people need to just trash the dogwoods altogether... and grow weed there instead...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...

It looks close, but could the leaves differ?

These from the site above look like they curve as they come to a point at the ends and in my pic you will notice they are more rounded at the end?

Would this not make a difference in the species?

God created man, man plants grass, fertilized and watered the grass to watch it grow. Man cut grass and this confused God; in his infinite wisdom where did he go wrong? Why would man work, plant, water and once it grew cut it down just to see the process repeat.

Then God created Women

Definitely a bush honeysuckle. It is a weed and people do plant it. Not all that long ago home depot was selling them as a "fast growing hedge for screening". While not entirely untrue hey left off a keyword... Invasive! At least they are here. Best advice is to cut it down and kill the stump.
