Lonicera pileata whole Lonicera pileata close

Used as a hedging plant throughout the British Isles this shrub can escape possibly by seeding but most often through being thrown out. The leaves are longer than Lonicera nitida (Wilson's Honeysuckle) and the flowers slightly larger and paler yellow.

Lonicera pileata is found mostly around London, Southampton and the north west cities otherwise it is dotted sparsely around in the British Isles.
