Bush with red berries, ID please?

This bush was found in central PA. There are no thorns, and the berries don't smell like much at all when squished and are very juicy. These berries aren't in clumps, but seem to be just along a stem. It's pretty, and my sister is wondering if it'd be worth it to dig some of it out and plant it by her house. Do any of you know what plant this is?

Honeysuckle of some type, I believe.

To be more specific, I think it is Lonicera maackii.

It's a non-native honeysuckle, but not maackii. That one has more triangular leaves. The common one here in NJ that looks like that is Lonicera morrowii, but L tatarica and L bella are similar. They're all pretty invasive. FWIW, the non-native honeysuckles have hollow twigs and the native ones don't. Although now that I think of it I don't think I've ever seen a native one.
