I live by the Coast, and near the Woods, in zone 7, and I have gotten one of the best surprises of my life. A new plant that came out of nowhere. Here is the description, since I do not know how to place pictures here:

The leaves are about three inches, oval- type, and it has three yellow flowers in one branch, and in the same branch, about three inches further up has three white flowers. It follows the same pattern on the other branches. Both flowers have pendulums, and the most exotic fragrance, I have ever smelled.

It was hiding by the bottom of one of my trees facing the street, so to make sure no one stepped on it, I carefully took it out, and placed it in a pot with soil. Now, I hope that she will do well in her new environment........ very, very beautiful. I have never seen it. Maybe a native?

Could be, but a picture of the flowers would confirm. They are known to change color over time. Ours starts our more red, then dark orange as it opens, then lighter orange with age before dropping. The hummingbirds love it. It has way more than 3 flowers together, though.

Honeysuckle produces berries, birds and other animals eat the berries then they leave and poop out the seeds in other places, some of those seeds grow into plants. That is how most wild berry plants of any kind get spread around the country. It is a continuing cycle.
