Use several for the best impact. Allow them to form an exceptional, textured mound of arched branches.
Keep them clipped if you'd like. Or, let them grow as they will for a free-form, sculptural effect. You'll love the look of these carefree groundcover plants.
Starting in spring, you'll relish the tiny, creamy-white flowers and so will butterflies. There aren't many plants that grow into such a valuable nectar resource in the shade.
All season long, the incredible foliage brightens your shaded areas with a charming glow. Because the rounded leaves are perfectly opposite each other on the branch, there is even an air of formality about Edmee Gold.
The contrast between the formal leaf arrangement and the wild layered branches is quite noteworthy. You'll feel like you installed a living artwork, with a depth of contrast to keep your interest forever.
In fall, you'll be delighted with the attractive purplish berries of unclipped Edmee Gold plantings. So will your local songbirds.
Let this low-growing groundcover work hard to provide golden-yellow illumination just where you need it. It frankly requires very little care!
Use this plant to stabilize tricky slopes and to add a welcome boost of color under trees. Edmee Gold will attract beneficial pollinators and birds, but is blissfully deer and rabbit resistant.

How to Use Edmee Gold™ Honeysuckle in the Landscape
In a wooded property, use a stand of Edmee Gold to brighten up the understory of mature trees. Naturalize several of them at the top of a retaining wall to soften the look.
Plan for the mature spread of each plant, and let them "do their thing" for you. To create a solid mat of these brilliant groundcover shrubs, plant them two to three feet apart on center. The closer together you plant, the faster the results will be.
If you have a slope, try a gorgeous display of these undulating shrubs. Combine with Red Twigged Dogwoods, Sumac shrubs and specialty evergreen trees like Slenderina Weeping Blue Spruce.
On slopes, plant them in a staggered, zigzagging planting pattern. Mulch between plants and keep new mass plantings weeded until they grow together and touch.
This waterfall effect can also occur in a narrow raised planting bed filled with a single species planting. Commercial properties can easily draw the eye of prospects using this technique.
These graceful golden Honeysuckle have been used to create cunning trimmed topiary. Prune your passion project to shape in early spring.
#ProPlantTips for Care
Give them a position in partial shade or shade in well-drained soils. They'll need less than four hours of direct light a day.
Create a raised bed if your soil stays soggy after a rain event. You can also mound up additional soil and create an elevated planting site.
These gorgeous broad-leaved evergreens keep their foliage all year-long in warmer Zones. Further north, they may behave as a semi-evergreen.
Apply a medium amount of water on a regular basis. Pay especially close attention to watering during their first season as their roots are getting established.
