Could anyone tell me please the name of this shrub?
The bees love the tiny flowers, though the beauty is mainly in the bright green horizontal growth. It is evergreen and about 4ftX4ft now.




Looks like Lonicera pileata

Tis a Lonicera. 99% sure it's called a fly bush, grows to 10ft. looks same as one i have. I cut it right down and tried to kill it last year but it's growing back

Thats no good Grandad........ I;ve given mine a real good haircut. Found some lawn underneath where it had encroached about 2ft! Next to it is a Flowering Currant which i took the loppers to too...if you understand..a few toos in! The whole area looks so much better and both shrubs had layered there is a nice bit of space and more light........"just right for my chicken shed!" Ian said when he came home...:o(((
