A twiggy shrub with small, glossy, dark green leaves. The shrubby honeysuckle is perfect for adding stucture to the garden. It makes a good alternative to box as it's fast growing and can be tightly clipped into small hedges. It's also useful for elaborate topiary shapes as its twiggy growth is quite supple and can be easily trained when young. It thrives on most soils in sun or shade and will benefit from regular trimming to retain its shape.
