Lonicera pileata - Privet Honeysuckle

Lonicera pileata

Honeysuckle - Privet

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.
