Lonicera nitida (Large Plant)

Wilson's Honeysuckle

Hardy Shrub

This popular shrub is most commonly used as an evergreen hedging plant. Masses of tiny, dark green leaves crowd the long stems of Lonicera nitida, forming a dense bushy plant that tolerates regular pruning. Not surprisingly, it is sometimes described as 'Poor Man's Yew', offering a cheaper, yet no less effective option, for creating formal hedges and topiary. From March to May, this shrubby Honeysuckle is adorned with small, creamy white flowers which are followed by a scattering of purple-blue berries. Easy to grow and maintain, this versatile shrub makes a fine hedge or can be grown as a large specimen plant if left unpruned. Height: 3.5m (11') if left unpruned. Spread: 3m (10') if left unpruned.
