Lonicera nitida May Green

Shrubby Honeysuckle May Green

A compact form of the shrubby honeysuckle, Lonicera nitida May Green is a small to medium-sized, rather slow-growing, evergreen shrub with a dense, upright, spreading habit, ideal for hedging or topiary. The leaves are small, oval, leathery and very bright, glossy green, rather like those of box. If the shrub is not clipped, small, lightly scented, cream-coloured flowers appear, followed in autumn by purplish berries, very attractive to birds. Despite its delicate appearance, shrubby honeysuckle May Green is a really tough, resilient, trouble-free plant which responds well to hard clipping.
