Description

Shrubby Honeysuckle (Lonicera nitida) Instant Hedging is a small leaved evergreen that gives a great privacy screening option. It is a fast growing plant and requires regular trimming to help it maintain its shape. It is capable of being kept around 60 cm tall to make a low parterre style instant hedge. Shrubby Honeysuckle (Lonicera nitida) Instant Hedging can be grown up to around 150 cm tall but at this height it needs to be cut with a taper to allow light into the base to stop them going bare.

The Shrubby Honeysuckle has been much talked about as a replacement for Common Box and it will make a reasonable alternative especially with its small leaves. When trimmed regularly it can make a very sharp edged formal hedge.

Unlike the climbing Honeysuckles the Shrubby Honeysuckles do not have large highly scented flowers. This is an easy hedging plant to grow giving good results in all reasonable soils.
