LONICERA as a Hedgeplant

(Evergreen)

Lonicera nitida (Chinese honeysuckle), 4 to 6 ft. This is not a climbing species like most other honeysuckles, but a shrub with tiny, dark green, oval leaves. It makes a close hedge, beautifully firm when closely clipped. Plant small plants about 1 ft. apart from late September to April, and cut them back to within 1 ft. of the ground immediately after planting. Trim lightly for the first year or two, but several times during the growing season once the hedge is established.
