Summer is here! This year's Summer Solstice eased in, surrounding us with warmth and its gift of longer days.
We search, investigate, and learn as we visit our favorite nurseries, discover new plant suppliers, and thoroughly enjoy the retail therapy of buying.
We dig, plant, and watch our favorites grow and blossom. Bulbs that have erupted from the ground surprise us with new color, shape and fragrance not seen before. Our specimen plants emerge.
Now are the moments to savor the fruits of our labor. Summer is here. Don't miss a minute. Anticipate more.
Lonicera nitida 'Twiggy'
COMMON NAME Box Honeysuckle - Lonicera nitida
ZONE 6 - 9 Height: 2’ x 2’
For those of you familiar with its cousin, Baggeson's Gold, you'll find this compact variety of golden box honeysuckle (Lonicera nitida ‘Twiggy’) much easier to work with in smaller garden plots. Give it about two to three feet and it takes readily to pruning if you need to keep it on the small side.
Features droopy twiggy branches and takes well to regular pruning.
Attracts butterflies and hummingbirds. Stunning bright color evergreen with shades of bronzy pink at the tips. Year round interest, brightens any spot in the garden.
In hot summer climates, plants perform best in shade. Its best features are its moderate water use, small overall size, and foliage color and it has the same reddish-bronze tip in winter.
