Post #3393032

We moved house a couple of years ago and this is the last remaining plant in our garden that we haven't identified yet! It is a deciduous shrub, 2 metres tall (at an estimated age of 15 years). It has green pointed oval leaves and small (2cm, about one inch) yellow trumpet shaped flowers which appear in pairs within a red outer covering. It flowers from mid-April to late June. Can anyone help?

Found ID forum after posting here and re-posted. This plant was successfully identified by several contributors (to whom many thanks) as Lonicera involucrata
