Hi, could anyone help with identifying this hedge plant? I think it might suit my front garden as  it looks like it won't grow too high. Many thanks for any assistance.imageimage

     Lonicera pileata has flowers that the bees love

    Both L pileata and L. nitida are known as Box Honeysuckle. Make sure you get Lonicera pileata. Lonicera nitida is tall, straggly and comparatively dull in leaf
