Do honeysuckles intertwined with other bushes kill the other bush, I noticed that the honeysuckles are growing and spreading and have made my other bushes dry out and losing the leaves leaving just empty branches. Any help would be greatly appreciated..
I don't know if it will harm other plants but it is distracting and can be heavy enough if allowed to grow to put extra stress on the bushes/trees it climbs over. I had one on a willow (both volunteers). I liked the spiral restrictions it put in the willow as both grew but eventually they both became too much so I cut them down. I spray and pull out ones that creep onto our property from our neighbors. I will enjoy the scent in the woods when they are in bloom but I don't want them in our yard.
