the name of this climber

Evening,

This climber was planted when we moved into our new house.


It seems to be growing well. But I don't know name of it. Subsequently, I am no sure sure how, when and if it should be pruned. It is growing on a trellis and I added extra trellis so it can grow all the way up a high wall.


Many thanks

    Lonicera - almost certainly the variety Lonicera japonica 'Halliana'
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    I meant to add that I wish mine looked that healthy - you are obviously doing the right things.  :) The main thing they need is water and often get mildew if the roots get dry.
