Hope you are well and keeping safe 

From the 'picture this app' I am being advised that I have a Lonicera henri. 

Is this invasive. 

Please advise

    @chemblue All honeysuckles can be strong growing but they can also be pruned. Where are you growing it over an arch maybe?

    L. henryi get big, but I wouldn't call them invasive. There are several varieties. 
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    It is growing along a fence. I had read that japanese honeysuckle is a problem and wanted to ensure I am not going to have a problem

    I have Henrii Copper Beauty, I don't find that it grows much faster than other honeysuckles. Mine gets a tidy up every year.
