Notes:

I have lots of whatever this is. When it flowers it smells like honeysuckle but not sure it is. It is prolific in the native parts of my landscape. It grows as a multi-trunk shrub. I have some examples with trunks several inches in diameter. I am hoping to prune them a few feed from the ground so they will branch and leaf lower and be deer food.
