| This is a dense, bushy, fast growing evergreen and a very popular choice for those who want a medium height evergreen hedge (up to about 2m). Its densely packed leaves, borne on long stems, are tiny so it forms a very dense hedge. It has a high tolerance of clipping which makes it ideal as a neat, formal hedge. It's a very common hedging plant despite few people knowing it's name - we hope our photograph helps to make it recognisable. It's sometimes called Poor Man's Yew.|
Due to its fast growth rate and tiny leaves on supple stems, it's also a very popular choice for topiary . It is easily trimmed in Summer and Autumn. Lonicera Nitida is suitable for shady sites, and most soil types, but not wet or windy sites, or seaside gardens.
Prices shown are the price per plant. Recommended planting densities for pot grown plants are shown but this is very much a matter of choice and you can increase or reduce the density depending on your level of patience. Cell grown plants are normally planted at 4 per metre in a single row or 6 per metre in a double staggered row. See also our Advice section on Planting Density on the right hand side of our website.
Both pot grown and cell grown plants are available all year round and bare root plants are available November to early April.
