Dwarf Honeysuckle Can Be Used as a Dense Hedge
Clavey’s Dwarf Honeysuckle, Lonicera xylosteum 'Claveyi', is a compact, finely branched, dwarf Honeysuckle that has clean gray-green foliage and can be sheared to form a dense hedge.
The yellow flowers in May are followed by red berries in autumn. It is a useful and easy-to-grow plant and likes average, well-drained soil. Once established, the plant is drought tolerant and grows 6-8 feet tall and has a 5-6 foot spread.
This plant appears to be quite salt tolerant. Honeysuckles are easy to grow, vigorous, heat-tolerant, and nearly indestructible.
The flashy and fragrant flowers will attract hummingbirds and butterflies all summer long. Many honeysuckles will thrive in containers as well.
Clavey’s Dwarf produces blue/gray-green foliage all season long. It is best pruned in late winter. This plant tolerates urban conditions well and it is not fussy about soil types.
