Since we bought our house, this plant was quite small bush ... continued growing and haven't found its name. Neighbours and friends cannot ID it .. hopefully you can help me find its name .. this past summer, it bore red fruits like berries ... attaching few pics as reference. As always, thank you.

    It looks like a bush Honeysuckle. Could be Lornicera Tatarica.

    Think there’s a typo ... Lonicera ... just in case you’re looking it up in a book ...

    I've got a shrubby honeysuckle  which can get fairly rampant  but is easily cut back. Main reason for growing it is tiny scented flowers in February  or even earlier  wonderful  for those very first bumblebees of the year it had small  Red fruits lie those in winter

    Thank you both - Dovefromabove and tessagardenbarmy. Insights are appreciated always. I will take a look Lonicera profile plants and examine the traits of the tree. Will be a fun adventure :-)

    Thanks Dovefromabove, I clearly cannot spell the Latin names...

    Was a bit late yesterday so just had a second look at the photographs again. It could be Lonicera Xylosteum, Fly Honeysuckle. You never mentioned the flowers. Were they quite small and not showy?

    Borderline, thank you for additional info. You may be correct with this type as the flowers are quite small and seems in cognito unless you will be close and staring at them.  I am not sure i have a picture of the flowers ... will try to locate just in case but remember that the flowers were seem to be small and as you said, not showy. 

    cheers,LT

    Thanks for another photo of the flowers. Although it's not very clear, I think they are very similar in size and colour for the Fly Honeysuckle.

    I will capture a better and closer shot of the flowers next spring to re-confirm. I believe the description is the closest so far - i like the fact that it is an European Fly Honeysuckle :-) Thanks again, Borderline!
