Q.Is There Such A Thing As A Dwarf Leycesteria (Himalayan Honeysuckle)?

Zone Merseyside, in the north west of the United Kingdom | Frances Wainwright added on October 12, 2020 | Answered

I understand that Leycesteria is normally a shrub which grows up to 20 feet tall. However, my neighbour (with whom I am not acquainted) has one, growing in full sun, which never reaches more than 3 feet, looks healthy, is very floriferous and never shows any signs of having been pruned. I can find no reference to a dwarf Leycesteria on any horticultural website. Could it be genetic or environmental factors which are responsible for its small stature? And if my neighbour allows me to take a cutting, when and how should I do this?
