I've heard of Lonicera kamtschatica before and it looks pretty interesting - what's the flavor like? I'm sure it would grow well here, as Loniceras tend to thrive here. A little too well, in fact; we already have several invasive asiatic Lonicera species wreaking havoc on our floral communities. I'd hate to be the guy who brings  the next invasive honeysuckle over here.

Any other Americans growing L. kamtschatica? Is it as potentially-invasive as I suspect it is?

I'm not growing any myself yet, but they've started to really grow in popularity among fruit growers in Wisconsin as an alternative to blueberries in parts of the state that have alkaline soils.  I haven't heard anything about them being invasive here, but Kentucky might be a different story.
