Field Notes
The day we went outside to find invasive species was cool, cloudy, and windy. It was 61°. We walked around the island forest and looked for our assigned plants. I was looking for Morrow's Honeysuckle. I didn't find it. I was surprised by the amount of giant knotweed. It was taking over the forest.
Supporting Evidence
Photo of my evidence.
Morrow’s Honeysuckle leaves are blue-green and oval shaped. They have smooth edges (this one doesn’t) and are opposite on the stem (this one is whorled).
Photo of my evidence.
It was a multi-stemmed bush but the branches stood up straight rather than spread out.
Photo of my evidence.
Stems were more dark brown than light brown and they weren’t hollow.
