This 1967 introduction, from J.H. Baggesen of Kent, England, is now popular around the world. This beautiful, low-growing, golden yellow leaf form of the boxwood leaf bush honeysuckle makes a 3' wide x 3' tall clump of dainty golden foliage...a dynamite color addition to any garden. The attractive evergold foliage is equally at home in the perennial border or in a large rock garden.
