Honeysuckle - Privet

'Moss Green' Privet Honeysuckle is a lower form of the evergreen groundcover shrub. Lonicera pileata 'Moss Green' has very neat tiny paired leaves which provide interest in summer and winter. Great in shady deer-dominated areas and very tolerant of sandy soils. The Scott Arboretum has an amazing bed of this around a Calder sculpture.
