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.
