The Japanese Honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica; Suikazura スイカズラ/吸い葛 in Japanese; Jinyinhua in Chinese; in Chinese and Japanese) is a species of honeysuckle native to eastern Asia including China, Japan and Korea.
It is a twining vine able to climb up to 10 metres (33 ft) high or more in trees, with opposite, simple oval leaves 3–8 centimetres (1.2–3.1 in) long and 2–3 centimetres (0.79–1.2 in) broad. The flowers are double-tongued, opening white and fading to yellow, and sweetly vanilla scented. The fruit is a globose[clarification needed] dark blue berry 5–8 millimetres (0.20–0.31 in) diameter containing numerous seeds.
It is an invasive species in a number of countries. 
This species is often sold by American nurseries as the cultivar 'Hall's Prolific' (Lonicera Japonica var. Halliana). It is an effective groundcover, and has pleasant, strong-smelling flowers. It can be cultivated by seed, cuttings, or layering. In addition, it will spread itself via shoots if given enough space to grow.
In both its native and introduced range, Japanese Honeysuckle can be a significant source of food for deer, rabbits, hummingbirds and other wildlife.[1]

Flora of Mississippi, USA-002: The Honeysuckle, Lonicera japonica of Caprifoliaceae, from Mississippi.  

- Mine from California, photographed 2009
- Now they are in full bloom, making their vicinities pleasantly fragrant.
- Mein from Ritterhude. July 2010. Hope the ID is correct!
- Your first one is fine but you seem to have mixed up another species in next photographed. I have photographed it in California and will upload it separately.
- In Connecticut and neighboring counties in NY this is considered extremely invasive, and we volunteered three summers to remove them lock stock and roots from river banks and native woodlands and conservancies, along with other invasive species... in mid 90s..I think in this case we had moderate success ... local flora got space
to grow and thrive.. 
And YET  in other parts of the country they are still being planted as ground cover and as ornamental ... go figure !!!
Yet, many of us do love the flowers and paint them, photograph them, and watch hummingbirds hover....

For Species id please.
Sorry for bad pictures due to low light.
Lonicera sp. Caprifoliaceae family

This is a creeping shrubby plant? Most reasonably, it should be Lonicera japonica- Honey Suckle.
Thanks for the id. It does look like Lonicera japonica.

Fwd: STORY OF A FLOWER ( HONEYSUCKLE ) : 1 post by 1 author. Attachments (1)
In 1974 while undergoing training at Indian Military Academy we were taken to a hill feature called CLOUD END. There was a briefing by the platoon commander at a forest rest house. The briefing was on but a sweet smell of some flower distracted my attention.All the time my eyes were trying to locate the source of this sweet smell. There was a break after the briefing. I started searching the area to locate the source of this sweet smell. I found a climbing twiner near the rest house with white white flowers was the source. This flower was not familiar to me. I asked the chowkidar about the identity of the flower. He told me it was CHAMELI. I have heard about Chameli but have not seen one, so for me the flower was CHAMELI.
      In 1981 I was at Pachmarhi. There are number of old bungalows at Pachmarhi. In one of those bungalows I found the same plant. AEC training college and centre has a well stocked library. With the help of SOME BEAUTIFUL INDIAN CLIMBERS AND SHRUBS by L N Bor and M B Raizada I concluded that the flower was Japanese Honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica). I was in love with this flower and wanted to plant one in our garden at Cooch Behar. A sapling was brought from Pachmarhi and it was planted in 1985. When the plant blooms it reminds my days in Dehradun and Pachmarhi.
Attaching a collage of the plant in our garden.

Saw this climber in Auli, Uttarakhand in Aug 2018. It was cultivated and not wild.
Is this Lonicera japonica?

Appears close as per images at 
But leaves are creating a little bit of doubt at first glance.
