Lonicera nitida ‘Baggesen’s Gold’ is an adaptable and versatile shrub that adds a glow of sunshine to the garden. It develops into a mound of arching branches covered with dainty, golden leaves. In sun these take on a “platinum blond” cast, in more shade they deepen to chartreuse. Equally at home in a perennial border or as a specimen shrub, it makes a good golden substitute for boxwood, lending itself to shearing for topiaries and hedges. It can also be used as a tall groundcover under large trees and makes an attractive addition to the winter garden.
