Notes:

located in East Tennessee although I’ve seen it in Georgia (I’m a native Georgian). This has very small flowers and leaves (as shown by comparison with the ruler). It smells a lot like honeysuckle, though not exactly like the larger blooming honeysuckle I grew up with in Atlanta.

    Of course Chinese privet! Japanese privet has larger, shinier leaves. Thanks Mrs B. Must have been overwhelmed with the fragrance!

    We call it Chinese privet in Alabama. And some folks call it Devil’s Spawn. I hate the smell AND the horrible allergy attack it brings with its stinky blooms.
