Lonicera Nitida

Lonicera Nitida is a very useful evergreen hedging plant and is a good substitute for Box.  It makes a small hedge up to 5ft high and clips well into a neat and formal looking hedge.  It has a small leaf and is often mistaken for Box hedging but grows very much faster.  It will grow on dry sandy soils as well as chalky soils but does not like waterlogged ground.
