It is growing beside the road, at my neighbors house. It is growing up into a tree. I think its kind of pretty .. but would like to know what it is first, before I go poking around in it.

    Looks related to honeysuckle & dogwood. Does it have a scent?

    Perhaps it is a crabapple.

    The vine with the tube shaped flowers is honeysuckle. Very fragrant.

    It looks like honeysuckle to me. If it is pure white it is probably Lonicera albiflora.

    I agree the long flowers look like honeysuckle, but the other flowers, could it be climbing hydrangea?

    Honeysuckle vine is much less invasive than the bush type. The vine is very fragrant and can be trained. Watch out for the bees. :)

    there are two separate plants here, the tube flowers are Honeysuckle. Climbing Hydrangeas is a maybe for the other ball shaped cluster of flowers.

    It is not mock orange Sharon B, but it might be the wild rose bush we both have. Only thing mine is not blooming yet, so seems too early to be that. I have this too but not sure what it is.
