Lonicera nitida 'Baggesen's Gold'

Baggesen's Gold Golden Boxleaf Honeysuckle has small, golden evergreen leaves on arching branches, creating a mounding shrub. Ideal colour contrast; leaves will turn more chartreuse in shady locations and will fade if too dry and hot (burn). A good substitute for boxwood and may be used as a tall groundcover. Responds well to pruning.

Lonicera nitida 'Red Tips'

Red Tips Boxleaf Honeysuckle forms an open, arching mounded shrub with small, evergreen foliage. New foliage is a spectacular burgundy, fading to a red tinge on glossy green leaves, with older leaves being almost entirely green. Responds well to pruning

Lonicera pileata

Privet Honeysuckle is a semi-evergreen shrub with horizontal branching making it ideal for underplanting and as a groundcover. Small, bright green new oblong leaves contrast with darker green older leaves. Small, tubular creamy-white flowers in late spring are followed by violet-blue purple translucent berries.
