Hello all,
This is the result of a cutting I took last year from a larger bush.  I can't remember the name of the plant.  I am sure it is a Honeysuckle, but can anyone tell me please, the correct name?

Many thanks
Richard :)

    There is a variety of Lonicera standishii called 'Budapest' ; this has pinkish white flowers .
    Probably totally wrong though ! :(

    Paul,
    Comparing the flowers, they appear to be very similar, I think you may well be right :)
    Thank you :)

    On further research, I've found this; Lonicera tatarica...

    Although the leaves look quite pale in your photo, I think they look a lot like Lonicera Tatarica, Tatarian Honeysuckle.

    Agree Lonicera.
    However, leaves /flowers are wrong for Lonicera standishii Budapest.see pic 3.4 and 5.

    Lonicera tatarica Rosea is a better fit.see pics 1 and 2.
    Perthshire. SCOTLAND .

    Thank you Borderline and Silver Surfer, I hadn't seen your posts before I posted my later pic of tatarica.  It seems that this is my plant :). I shall post on here a photo my mature shrub for comparison.  Many many thanks to all for your help and interest :)

    Regarding the pale leaves, as pointed out by Borderline, I should say that this plant was in the greenhouse until today, when I potted it on for outside admiration :)
