Miniglobe has outstanding dense foliage in a cool and collected blue-green. Looking fantastic all growing season and filling out this compact hardy shrub! You and your beneficial pollinators and Hummingbirds will adore the small, fragrant creamy-white flowers that stand out and up along the tops of the branches in the mid-spring months! By autumn, Miniglobe produces inconspicuous red fruit, and while you won't notice it, the songbirds will!

Planting and Application:

This form of Dwarf Bush Honeysuckle creates an excellent foundation plant or it can be used as a low hedge for property division or backdrops to your garden beds and borders! Use these 3-4 foot tall and wide shrubs as a natural hedge because of their naturally consistent shape and form without all the work! Ideal for shoring up the bare leggy stems of an older flowering shrub hedge or evergreen privacy wall as facer shrubs.

Many Honeysuckles will thrive in containers as well! Pot up in matching planters and dot a few of these hardy shrubs along a walkway with a Vinca vine spilling out from around its base! Make your life easier by using plants that require little to no pruning to keep them in a neat and tidy form!

Most notably, Miniglobe is a fantastic, low-maintenance Xeriscaping plant! The soothing blue-green coloration and rounded form are perfect for accenting that tricky hell strip along the road, the driveway, and the sidewalk. Plant along a footpath or area where the sun bakes the ground, or an area that is sandy and rocky like by the mailbox or in the Rock Garden.

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Miniglobe does well in an urban setting! Plant in the full sun and in a location with very well-drained soil for best results. Provide moderate regular waterings for new plants, but after these bushes are established, they become very drought-tolerant and low-water usage landscaping plants! If pruning or shearing is needed, do so in late winter or very early spring. This Lonicera grows well in most soil types and pH levels and does not like areas with standing water.

  • Full Sun
  • Low Moisture Needs Once Established
  • Highly Adaptable to Soil & Environment
  • Great in Urban Settings
  • Prune Late Winter or Very Early Spring If Needed

Everything you need in an easy-going, adaptable and compact shrub, wrapped into one! Hurry and order the Miniglobe Honeysuckle bush from NatureHills.com today before this little powerhouse is gone!
