lonicera

Honeysuckles are such a large group of plants that we've divided the subject into two groups - shrubs and vines. They share tubular flowers that are often fragrant, and leaves set opposite from each other that sometimes fuse together forming a disc.

Lonicera frangrantissima

Lonicera fragrantissima - Winter Honeysuckle

Cute white flowers with strong citrus fragrance bloom on bare branches in mid to late winter. Sort of a vine, sort of a shrub, the plant develops into a broad irregular tangled mass providing great cover for birds. Green leaves turn yellow-brown in fall and red fruits appear in summer. Best planted in a spot that is passed-by regularly in winter during bloom, but that can disappear into the background in summer.

Grows 6-10' x 6-10', sun to part shade, Z4

Lonicera crassifolia - Creeping Honeysuckle

Pale yellow tubular flowers blushed pink at the base are wonderfully fragrant. Small round evergreen leaves are glossy green and turn a bit red during winter. Creeping Honeysuckle is a low-growing groundcover and looks beautiful draping over a wall or the edge of a container. It may not be dense enough to use for erosion control or weed suppression, like many other groundcovers are used.

Grows 2-4" tall x 12-24" wide, sun to part shade, Z7

Lonicera nitida - Boxleaf Honeysuckle

Lonicera nitida

'Baggeson's Gold', 'Lemon Beauty', 'Red Tip'

Typical Boxleaf Honeysuckles have glossy green leaves and are really easy to grow. We offer a few different varieties of Lonicera nitida that possess the same easy care and evergreen leaves, but with the added benefit of brightly colored foliage that lends a bright splash of color year round. Flowers are tiny and hide in the leaves, but are scented. Shrubs can be allowed their natural mounded fountain shape, or pruned tightly like a boxwood.

All grow to 4-5' x 4-5', take sun-part shade & are hardy in Z6.

Lonicera pileata - Privet Honeysuckle

Grows 2' x 8' - sun, part shade, Z5
