Yes same, yellow and white. There is another one with pink and white color i saw in Islamabad but not in lahore.I got some seeds of japonica got in trade from USA but did not try it as cuttings are easy here.

The wild one at murree is bush type and totally yellow no white, so different than the one in lahore we have.

Lonicera periclymenum serotina is beautiful. lonicera fragrantissima is not as pretty but blooms in winter. Honeysuckle Lonicera x heckrottii 'Pink Lemonade' is also pretty.

The variety I know not but I looked after it for 5 years and it did not bloom, so got replaced,
If anyone has a fragrant flowering Honysuckle I would love to try cuttings this July.

Brig Sb, you can get cuttings from lawrence gardens easily. My honeysuckle is suffering from heat as it is on terrace so it has only one stem, also it is yet to produce blooms. I am also looking for any forum members having honeysuckle cuttings.

I think I can help, I have honeysuckle growing in my neighbor. I'l get cuttings from him and send them to Khabab and Brig Sahab. Hopefully after a week or so. (until real monsoon begins) or else they wont survive the heat. The flower is of off white and yellow i guess. Waisay I have also seen bright orange one in a house at the other end of the city. I'l see if I can get a cutting of that one aswel.

Oh yes that will be great if you get hold of the orange one. Just knock the door, meet the gardener, invite him to forum and get the cuttings, simple :)
