You are correct in not buying Japanese honeysuckle vines as they are the invasive ones. You can tell by the botanical name if it is the Japanese variety (Lonicera japonica), so don't buy any plant with that name. The article below gives some other differences if you don't see the botanical name with the plant you want to buy.
