Lonicera nitida 'Elegant' (Large Plant)

Shrubby Honeysuckle

Hardy Shrub

A more compact cultivar than the species, Lonicera nitida 'Elegant' makes an equally good hedge. Small dark green leaves, densely packed onto long stems create a dense evergreen screen. Lonicera nitida 'Elegant' tolerates regular pruning and can even be used as an alternative to traditional Yew plants for creating formal topiary. The creamy white blooms which appear in spring are followed by purple-blue berries that often attract wild birds. This evergreen shrubby Honeysuckle is easy to maintain at a manageable size, with a neat and tidy appearance after pruning. Height and spread: 1.8m (6') if left unpruned.
