Lonicera nitida PB6.5
Common/Maori name(s): Box Honeysuckle
A fast growing hedging shrub growing between 40 - 60cm per year. Can be used for hedges up to 3m in height. The small dark leaves result in a very neat looking hedge when clipped. This plant can be grown in full sun or part shade in all soils apart from very boggy soil. Very hardy to frost down to -20c. Drought tolerant but not tolerant of very high wind. If unclipped or infrequently clipped it will bear purple berries in late summer / autumn eaten by birds. In spring the lightly fragrant flowers are very sought after by honeybees.
