This months RHS magazine has a picture of a new honeysuckle called"mandarin"
I was really excited until I found that it had little or no scent. For me, the whole point of honeysuckle is the scent. I have "Graham Thomas," which I believe he found in a hedgerow and then propagated. It is all yellow and has a long flowering season. Belgica and Serotina are also well perfumed and will extend the season.
Although it can be rampant, it responds well to an annual hackback.
