Privet Honeysuckle is a beautiful evergreen shrub with low horizontal branches that will root-in and slowly spread over time, making it a good choice as a woody groundcover or as a slope stabilizer. Native to China, it is salt tolerant and does well in seashore settings. It is easy to shape by pruning and is an excellent choice for shady deer-dominated areas. Lonicera pileata often produces glowing amethyst fruits in late summer on older plants.
PRN Preferred: Works much better than any Cotoneaster as a groundcover. This evergreen works well in dry sites.
