I saw this large shubby climber while walking the dog this afternoon. It has fairly small, bright pink, Lonicera (Honeysuckle) shaped flowers. The leaves are soft like a Lonicera too.

Anyone know this one?

It almost looks like lorepetalum and I know that's not spelt correctly. However, the flowers are somewhat similar but the leaves of the lorep... thingy are more reddish!!

Vic, yes, cuttings would be possible from the plant.

Thanks for the idea, I looked up Loropetalum (not far off L!) but the leaves aren't as rounded on the pictured shrub and don't have such obvious veining. Maybe I haven't seen the right picture yet but I'm not convinced so far :)

Baa another thought!! Wouldn't be a bush clover would it?? Lespedeza!! I say this because of the flower clusters!!

At the risk of sounding awkward ... definitely not, Lespedeza is a legume and the plant pictured doesn't have pea like flowers. Thanks for the thought though!

lol you can sound as awkward as you like. I really can't make out the blooms that well - possibly bad eye sight!! It was just a guess!! One thing I did know though, that clover is a legume :-)

Could it be a Rhaphiolepis? indica is evergreen and the leaves on your photo don't look right, but might it be umbellata?

Sorry Philomel nope but thanks for trying!

It has small Lonicera like bright pink petals, little insect like ribbons in small clusters.

Ah...mmmmmm...that makes life difficult! Just have to keep searching then:
Lonicera syringantha?

Is it scented?

I couldn't find a scent on it but maybe it was the wrong time of day. I'll have to do some more research on the Lonicera syringantha but it certainly sounds more like it thanks! :)

I don't think this plant is your plant: http://davesgarden.com/journal/si/2591.html but I thought it might resemble it enough to give you another crumb trail to follow. Found it in Go_Vols journal while looking up Bergamot.

Thanks Wingnut

The shrub isn't in the Lamiaceae family but thanks for the thought :)

Sure! I'm not much on IDing, but I am good at shots in the dark. ;-) If I see anything else resembling it, I'll let you know. Just a thought ~ have you ever heard of Weird Dude's Plant Zoo? If we're all still stumped, I wonder if he'd know if he was sent an e-mail with pic? http://www.weirddudesplantzoo.com/
