Please can anyone identify this deciduous shrub?

    No definitely not Honeysuckle. The flowers are teeny weeny and it does not climb and has a 5-6 inches woody trunk.

  • I'm convinced that's honeysuckle.  Not all honeysuckle climbs and it can get very tall so what's wrong with such a thick trunk?

    Lonicera Japonica...  https://www.rhs.org.uk/plants/details?plantid=1187

    The flowers are only about 8mm long and don't really have any colour to them. It is definitely a deciduous shrub and not a Honeysuckle. Anyone got any other ideas ?

    If it is flowering at the moment my guess would be Lonicera × purpusii 'Winter Beauty'.

    I agree with honeysuckle too.  I have a deciduous shrubby one that has tiny pink flowers in the spring.

    Looks like Lonicera tatarica.

    It comes in white, pink and red forms, some of which are quite variable.

    Ok- I concede- you are all right- it does now look like a Honeysuckle - thank you. I didn't realise they came in shrub-like forms.

    Thanks everyone.
