Shrubby Honeysuckle hedge (Lonicera nitida) description

Lonicera nitida provides year-round interest, blooming with creamy-white flowers in the spring and blue-purple berries in the autumn. Lonicera’s lush, dark green foliage is densely packed on its branches, and very small in size, making it an excellent hedging screen.

Shrubby Honeysuckle is ideal for less experienced gardeners, as it is easy to grow and very forgiving of over-enthusiastic pruning, as it’s a fast-growing hedge. Plus, its small leaves make it make it easier to trim it to a neat shape.

 

Best uses for Lonicera nitida hedge plants

Thanks to its dense, long-lasting, evergreen foliage and fast growth rate, Shrubby Honeysuckle makes a great noise barrier as well as a privacy screen. A wonderfully versatile plant, Lonicera nitida works just as well as a trimmed formal hedge as it does left a little bushy, for a relaxed garden style. 

Lonicera is ideal for both shaded and sunny positions and is suited to most soil types, except for very wet or exposed sites.

Combine Lonicera nitida hedging with..

For a striking colour combination, try growing Lonicera nitida with Golden Honeysuckle, or grow it alone for a classic look.

Growth rate of a Shrubby Honeysuckle hedge

A fast-growing hedge, Lonicera can achieve around 40 – 60cm per year, and looks best when maintained at a height of between 1 – 3m.

Care advice for Lonicera nitida hedge plants

A relatively low-maintenance shrub, we would recommend you give Lonicera nitida a trim two or three times a year just to keep it looking neat, ideally in the summer or autumn. If your honeysuckle plant is looking leggy and overgrown, it can be regenerated by hard pruning the plant back to around 30cm from the ground. This should be done in winter when the plant is dormant and will encourage fresh, bushy growth in the spring. Take a look at our Hedging Care Advice for more information on caring for your Shrubby Honeysuckle hedging.

Recommended planting density for Lonicera hedging

To find out about the recommended planting density requirements for Lonicera nitida hedging, take a look at the product table. Visit our advice section for further planting density advice.

Shrubby Honeysuckle plants can be purchased as pot grown and cell grown all year round, as well as trough grown instant hedging. In the dormant season between November and mid-to-late May, Lonicera nitida can be purchased as bare roots.

Although the majority of our Lonicera nitida hedge plants are grown in the UK by our team of horticultural experts – who have generations of nursery-growing experience – occasionally we need to source plants from dedicated nurseries outside of the UK. At best4hedging, we are proud of our high levels of quality and always do what we can to deliver only the freshest, best-quality plants at the most competitive prices.

The plants were healthy and ready for planting. They were bought to replace box hedging which had to be removed due to box blight.
