I hope this one is transluscent honeysuckle (though no fruits were seen this time)
Lonicera quinquelocularis Hardw., Asiat. Res. 6:351, 1799.
Also attaching image of the fruits taken from Shimla in November 2010..

This is transluscent honeysuckle, I hope you remember we saw this last month, but this was without fruits.. Lonicera quinquelocularis
… you are truly a teacher
Now I remember and made the connection
Looks like Lonicera quinquinocularis..
Thank you … also confirms this to be Lonicera quinquinocularis or Translucent Honeysuckle. Do you know if the fruits are edible?
Thanks for showing plants with characters different from flowers. Most of us are more attracted towards flower but often we don’t know how the same plant looks in nonflowering stage.
There are several shrubs of these near my home. Could this be a Jasmine?

Himalayan honeysuckle ?
Lonicera glabrata most likely
opens white, turns yellow
wait till it fruits
may not be edible but translucent red berries may develop, I dont know for sure
Thank you … I will await the fruits.
Lonicera species in eFIoraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available)
Is it an erect shrub ?
It is … But not tall, the branches bending low on the slopes.
First photograph appears as Lonicera quinquelocularis.
first one … i have no doubt you are right but the later two … i have doubts that its japanese honey suckle..
if not l. japonica what else could it be… needs further investigation.
i should perhaps know since i have helped our forest and bot dept. uproot hundreds over several years as part of volunteer group that tried to eradicate weeds invading the parkways and native forests…
If I remember correctly these are of the same plant. It could be a cultivated species as well because I photographed it at the boundary of a school compound.
There is some confusion some where. My first reaction was also L. quinquelocularis (first photograph) and L. japonica (last two). The two can’t be normally be confused as former is an erect shrub with flowers not longer than 2 cm and latter a woody climber with flowers 3-5 cm long. I am uploading both for comparison.
My apologies for creating this confusion inadvertently. The two plants must then be growing next to each other making me believe that they were the same species.
Leaf morphology indicated these plants belonging to two different species. It is quite possible that they may be growing close to each others.
I realise my mistake … They were definitely close to each other otherwise I would not have made this error.
… number 2 and three have flowers that have thick juicy petals themselves, that does not tally with my experience of L. japonica, niether does it match any pictures on the net and not with … pictures…
Thank you .. for the pictures … which is which?
There is no doubt that these photographs belong to Lonicera quinquelocularis and L.japonica. … photographs have cleared all doubts regarding the identity.
I have posted Lonicera quinquelocularis in April 2018 and will also post L. japonica separately.
