Lonicera Nitida hedge plants description 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. Lonicera Nitida is a very common hedging plant despite few people knowing its name - we hope our photograph helps to make it recognisable. You may have heard it referred to as 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. Don't let hindering planting conditions deter your gardening goals, we supply a huge range of hedging plants for shade and plants for exposed sites. View also our entire range of evergreen plants here for additional options that provide year round interest.
Lonicera (Lonicera nitida) is a popular subsitute for Box hedging plants for its ability to be trimmed into a variety of shapes and it's insusceptible to Box blight. We have a section dedicate to box alternatives and blight for you to view our suggested hedging plants.
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.
Cell grown, pot grown and instant hedging plants are available all year round. Bare roots are only available from November to late April/early May.
