Welcome!

It's Honeysuckle, one of the climbing Lonicera but there's more than one with cream flowers.

I agree it's a honeysuckle, although if it's a shrub to about 6' rather than a climber I wonder if it might be 'Clavey's Dwarf' honeysuckle.

The leaves seem to be a match for Clavey's Dwarf. It seems this has to be pruned to keep it as a 'shrub'.

Hi & welcome! Lonicera maackii (Amur honeysuckle, a shrub) sure does get around. I used to pull hundreds of volunteers every spring in OH.

Tiffany, L. maackii supposedly grows to 15 feet, whereas 'Clavey's Dwarf' makes around 6 feet which is closer to Steve's plant's height (unless his hasn't reached its ultimate height yet). Maybe Steve can tell us if this is a planted shrub or a large "weed"! Is there some characteristic that suggests L. maackii to you more than the other one?

Forgot to say Welcome! Steve!

Yes, an assumption that it's a volunteer and that Steve probably lives where that plant is extremely invasive. Either or both could be wrong. Purchased hybrids are much less commonly a mystery in someone's garden. I just went with the odds by adding the suggestion, which was not intended to rule out the previous suggestion, just something extremely likely (depending on location) for Steve to investigate.

Just wondered if I missed something, because the plant looks to be in a garden and also the stems are reddish, as they are on 'Clavey's Dwarf'. When I looked at the pics of L. maackii the stems looked green to me but I'm not familiar with that plant. Yep, Steve will no doubt figure out which is the best fit Smiling
