SWEETBERRY HONEYSUCKLE     Lonicera caerulea var. edulis

The Sweetberry Honeysuckle is a medium sized shrub which is not subject to the aphid problems associated with many of the ornamental honeysuckles.

Flowering Shrub: Height to 1.5 m (4 to 5 ft.) with stiff arching branches. Retains a compact shape when grown in adequate light.

Foliage: Green, oblong leaves, medium texture.

Flowers: Yellowish white, not very showy.

Fruit: Small oblong berries of unique flavour but rarely produced in abundance.

Comments: This is a reliable filler plant that is drought tolerant once established. It is also great for the sheared hedge.
