Lonicera pileata. The leaves are not bi-pinnate but arranged in pairs along the stem.

Plant ID

Question from Vicky Gunn

In forum: Identify a plant

What is this low-growing plant? It looks like a Lonicera - probably a seedling.

Hi Barry, that looks like a honeysuckle (Lonicera). Hope that helps?

First looks like Lonicera nitida. Third looks like sweet box - Sarcococca. More sure of Lonicera than Sarcococca

Looks very like lonicera or honeysuckle. Should flower shortly.

I’ve also got a Lonicera (Copper Beauty) and there is no scent with those flowers either!

It would be nice to see its form, could it be Lonicera pileata? have you tried matching it to boxwood?

Thank you. I'll look at the Cotoneaster species suggested and compare. Elaine - the growth habit of the Lonicera is very L. nitida and the leaves are not as elongated as in L. pileata.
I thought the shrub in image 2 was Leucothoe too - but the leaves are apple green in colour. Will look into this more.
Thanks again
Rachel

The cotoneater is not lacteus, don't know if it is parneyi, lacteus has single berries along the stem, the lonicera could be be nitida or pileata, depends on its growth habit.

Plant identification

Question from Rachel Bailey

In forum: Identify a plant

Hello
I am trying to confirm identification/ identify a few shrubs. They are all growing in West of Scotland so mild, wet climate on slightly acidic to acidic soil.

All are in part shade.

Image 1. Being grown as a hedge - ranges in height from about 1 m to 2 m- is this Lonicera nitidia?
Image 2. Any ideas? I believe it is evergreen. This shrub is also growing in another location (not under a shrub) but in shade. Both are about 0.5 to 0.6 m high and 1 m spread.
Image 3. Is this Cotoneaster? And if so, does anyone know which species? Height about 2 to 2.5 m high and about 1.5 to 2 m spread

Many thanks
Rachel

It would be nice to see a close up of the plant, looks like it is leaning towards the sun, I am going to take a guess and say lonicera pileata 'Baggerson's gold'

It looks like a variety of honeysuckle (Lonicera). You can safely cut out any of the 'dead' woody bits, and cut it back as hard as you like - it will almost certainly sprout again next year.

Looks like a lonicera and is a vine, rather than a shrub.

Honeysuckle 'Lonicera Darts World' suitable for metal arch?

Question from Felicity Hasse

In forum: New to gardening

I have just installed a sturdy metal arch over a pathway and would like to plant an evergreen climber (or two). I am particularly drawn to Lonicera Japonica Darts World for its colour, promised fragrance and quite long flowering period. But I'm wondering if it'll be too bushy and big as the label says spread 1.5 mtrs and bushy and spreading. Although quite tall and wide, the arch is only about 60cm deep. Would this honeysuckle be okay or would it be too woody and vigorous? I don't really want roses, but would maybe consider an evergreen clematis or jasmine as an alternative. I want to keep things simple, so not a mixture of plants that might need pruning at different times. And should I have a climber either side or just one to grow over? Sorry for all the questions, but I'm new to gardening and any advice would be very welcome. Thank you.

Re: can you identify the shrub?

Message from Rachel Bailey

In forum: Identify a plant

Hello All

Thank you for all your responses.

Just to clarify, the plant is growing in front of a wall in a garden in west Scotland. We have a relatively mild microclimate (for Scotland) given that we are by the sea. Sorry I normally give more information about it's growing conditions etc. at the outset). The shrub is upright.

Mike, I think you have nailed it with Sophora. It is definitely not Cotoneaster and I really don't think it is Lonicera nitida or L. pileata. The leaves of my specimen are larger than the Lonicera mentioned and the growth habit is not the same as lonicera.

The seeds are attached to the shrub in question (I removed one to take a closer look at it) and there are others on the shrub. It does look strange compared with online images of the seed pods of Sophora sp. but only in that the online images show more round swollen areas within the hanging attachment. It could be - and this is speculation - that in our climate, the fruit has not developed fully - think beans in a pod - not all develop.

If it is Sophora, then it should flower over winter.

Thank you again
Rachel

The leaves of the plant looks like Lonicera nitida, check out lonicera pileata too, the fruit threw me for a loop, still don't know if it belongs to that plant.
