Im looking for a honeysuckle that can grow in a shady spot any suggestions?

All climbing honeysuckles are happy in the shade as they are naturally woodland plants - they do like the opportunity to get their tops in a bit of sunshine for part of th day, but their roots are best in the shade.  

Some ideas here  - my favourite is Graham Thomas

Honeysuckle likes a cool deep rootrun, so probably not at it's happiest in a pot - I've not grown it in one and don't think I'd try it. 

Lots of info here http://www.gardenersworld.com/blogs/plants/growing-honeysuckle/3507.html 

and information on propogation here http://apps.rhs.org.uk/advicesearch/profile.aspx?pid=439  I find layering the easiest way to go with honeysuckle.
