Can you identify this plant

Hi I have been told this is a pagoda plant, but the pagoda plant I have seen in books is nothing like this. It is growing in a south facing garden and is shrub like. It grows aprox 3ft in a season. Your help in identifying would be appreciated. Thank you, Tony.
I've heard it called a lot of things but not that. I can see where the idea comes from though.
Pheasant Berry and Himalayan Honeysuckle are more common names
In the sticks near Peterborough
The Pagoda Plant is Clerodendron paniculatum. 'Pagoda' from the shape of the Clerodendron flower panicles.
As Nut says, it L formosa, and not the Pagoda plant which is as Ladybird4 says.
When you don't even know who's in the team
Thank you all for your very helpfull replies. I was given a cutting by a relative and told what she thought the name was. Huh ! Now i know i can tease her lol.
Thanks again Tony.
