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...

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?

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.
