Little round...shrub?

Little round...shrub? (Lonicera nitida (Shrubby honeysuckle))

I have been...trimming? this a lot with some loppers as it does not stay little for long - it just seems to go out and out and out!

Thank you Bluespruce, I have been doing a bit of research on this one -to make sure that my lopping isn't doing any serious damage!- and there is a lot to say it is also known as 'box honeysuckle', is this another common name? Sorry to be a pain, it's just nice to learn!

Often called Boxleaf honeysuckle, Numbaten.

A lot of people use this for hedging, so you can keep it clipped tightly, with no harm to it. :-) Good if you fancy a bit of topiary! lol.

Yep, Lonicera 'Baggin's Gold', a very pretty non-flowering type, easy to keep in shape, and a lovely little variegated leaf.
