How to tell Lonicera from Buxus?
I've been given four fairly knackered looking old shrubs and told 'I think two are box and two are lonicera'. Now, I have plans to make a hedge with lonicera, and I'm broke, which is why the person gave them to me. But the location will NOT suit box. All four of the shrubs look the same, with green stems. Am I right in thinking that all the newest growth on lonicera nitida or pileata would have reddish stems? I'm hoping there's an easy way to id these as I don't want to waste free plants but equally don't want to plant box where it won't thrive. Can take photos if that's helpful for anyone to help me id them?
