Lonicera nitida (Boxleaf Honeysuckle) Details

Lonicera nitida, commonly known as the Boxleaf Honeysuckle, is a hardy shrub often used instead of Buxus as a hedge in NZ gardens. It carries dense, upright branches which host small and glossy, dark green leaves. New growth has attractive, purple-black edges. This evergreen typically grows to 2 m tall and 1 m wide and can be trimmed as necessary. Best results with this Lonicera are achieved when it is planted in full sun or partial shade on a well-drained site. It is tolerant of frost, cool climates, coastal conditions, and dry periods. Lonicera nitida makes for a lovely backdrop for smaller plants and is commonly trimmed into a hedge and used for topiary.
