I would think the original is either the lonicera periclymenum Belgica (the early Dutch one) or Serotina (the late Dutch one). They are cultivars of our native wild honeysuckle that have been around for a long time. I suspect the seedling won't come true to seed. It might not produce so many flowers, and the colour may be more like the native species, white and yellow. But...... you never know. It should certainly produce fragrant flowers. You won't have long to find out!
