Growing at end of road in wildish area . Gets morning sun. Arching branches 8 - 10 ft long. Bark lite tan/grey.
Bush 4 - 5 years old a volunteer. Haven't noticed flowers before, but then I haven't noticed this bush until last summer!

I agree with Lonicera. Maybe more of a shrub form like L. maackii or L. tatarica.

Thanks for taking a look but this is not a vine like honeysuckle. It grows in vase shape and stems are definitely woody and at least thumb thick. Also, leaves are uniform in shape as pictured.

Will look at the shrub forms now.

L. maackii http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/81750/

There's a few other Lonicera shrub-forms in Plantfiles. It'll be easier to id with a bloom.
