D hedge myrtle flowering space for the ornamental garden or company garden
The hedge myrtle Maigrün, Lonicera nitida Maigrün, is also known as a robust Böschungsmyrthe. It also copes excellently with unfavourable growing conditions. The hedge myrtle originates from China, belongs to the species of the poisonous plants and is the preferred hedge myrtle in Germany. The small shrub has small oval, very light green and shiny leather leaves on its branched branches. Its stems are often used for bouquets, flower bouquets and wedding wreaths. Its delightful, light and creamy yellow flower heads have slightly protruding pistils and exude a pleasant fragrance. Birds love to pick the round purple berries. Lonicera nitida 'Maigrün' is very vigorous, undemanding and healthy. It likes to grow at the edge of woods where there is humus-rich soil. Honeysuckles like sun, but can also thrive in partial shade and can cope with any type of soil. Even when it is hot or cold, Lonicera nitida 'Maigrün' can cope. Honeysuckles are frost hardy; if you like, you can pile some leaves or bark humus around them before winter. Honeysuckle Maigrün fits well in an ornamental garden, stylish Japanese garden or any other garden style. In the planting container, hedge myrtle likes a somewhat sheltered spot without strong winds, preferably near the house wall, on the balcony or terrace. As it tolerates fumes well, a city or company garden is also a perfect home for it.
Lonicera nitida Maigrün - most popular hedge myrtle, fun shaped hedge and practical slope planting
Lonicera nitida Maigrün is very popular as a slope hedge, border for flower beds, ground cover, wall and area planting, underplanting, hedge filler and boxwood substitute. It can grow up to one metre high. As a hedge, the honeysuckle Maigrün should be somewhat thinned and pruned into shape; some people like to cut it into patterns, e.g. spiral or spherical shape. Otherwise, the stems will either stand straight up or droop slightly. The evergreen honeysuckle is a pure feast for the eyes with its fresh green all year round. It is best to plant honeysuckles in spring or autumn and add a little humus and horn shavings; then they do not need to be fertilised for a year. In a trough or pot, give the honeysuckle a little liquid fertiliser every two months. When freshly planted, they need to be watered well so that they grow well. After that, watering is no longer necessary, then deep roots will form. Once well rooted it grows quickly. The Lonicera nitida 'Maigrün' is one of the most popular Bäume as bonsai.
