    Japanese/Korean honeysuckle.  Sorry, momentary blip on its botanical name but someone will know.

    It will self seed so just look out for seedlings next spring.

    Leycesteria formosa aka Himalayan honeysuckle. 

    The birds love the berries and that’s usually how they appear in our gardens … gifts from the birds.  If you look around near that one you may find some  seedlings already growing.

    Got loads of this in the garden. No need to propagate, it will take care of that by itself! I’ve pulled up loads of it, turn my back and another forest of it appears!
