An elfin selection of 'Baggescens Gold' from England! Average size is 2-3' high and wide; arching branches with tiny yellow leaves, evergreen – will take shearing (but seems a shame). Cute little shrub for sun to part shade (needs light for brightest color) – most soils – very easy. Great choice for tight spots!

Fantastic, slower growing, compact form of gold leaved Box Honeysuckle. Much, much slower than 'Baggesens Gold'. New stems emerge with tiny leaves that slowly grow larger. Full sun (but not reflected heat) to light shade in good soil with regular water during the summer. Excellent low clipped hedge. Space plants 2' apart. Very good evergreen for containers as well. Grows about 3" a year. YAY.

A New Zealand introduction of a classic, landscape plant with tiny golden leaves that hold their color well. Dense and, indeed, twiggy, and smaller than the species, to only 4 ft tall eventually. Excellent as hedging or bordering material, a bright spot in sun to part shade with average summer water. Evergreen in USDA zone 8 and cold hardy to USDA zone 6.

We are thrilled to offer the exciting new selection of the well-known Lonicera nitida 'Baggesen's Gold' that I first saw in the UK garden of Ashwood's John Massey. Lonicera 'Twiggy' makes a compact 2' tall x 2' wide shrub with twiggy growth, lined with tiny yellow leaves that hold their bright yellow color into the winter. I have seen literature from the UK that claims this cultivar will become taller than 2', but we haven't seen this to be the case in our trials. We're not sure if Lonicera 'Twiggy' was named for the twiggy growth or for a famed former model, who was also proportionally smaller in all parts.
