Plant ID please

I'm trying to id the plants in my friends garden - I'm hoping someone here can help with this one.

    Honeysuckle perhaps?

    Honeysuckle is an option we came up with as there is a honeysuckle with similar leaf elsewhere in the garden but the leaves are less glossy - may be the new growth differs in that way.

    What about Vinca Minor. Not sure on the scale of the leaves.

    Does it / did it flower?
  • LorrainePLorraineP Posts: 218
    Leaves are about 3" long - think leaf shape and spacing not right for vinca.

    What about Trachelospermum Jasminoides, the Star Jasmine.

    Not flowered yet this year - my friend moved into her new home in February this year so may have to be patient and wait for a flower 😕

    Jasmine is a possibility - it is a spindley specimen whatever it is.

    Could it be Lonicera henryi? The leaves and twining growth look like one I used to have in a previous garden.
