i purchased 3 honeysuckle bush online 2 years ago and did not know it was classified as invasive. did not know it got to over 10 feet tall. i have two in my front yard and now need to cut them back as they don't flower much anymore, but did when i purchased them. any suggestions?

i was affected by the freeze.

i am in zones 5 b. i may leave the bushes in, i trimmed the tops because they looked top heavy and droppy with seed heads( i think). they have not escaped, just growing taller and taller. i found a baptisia bush ( purple) which i like and have to determine if it will grow in our sandy soil, we are closer to the lake.
