The name Lonicera nitida 'Red Tips' describes the color of the new leaves that emerge red purple, turn reddish brown and then green as they mature. The glossy, half-inch, rounded foliage comes in pairs down the burgundy stems. Many of the green leaves have a hint of a red central vein. This many branched shrub is easy to grow and easy to shape. The fact that the new red growth continues to emerge throughout the growing season gives it great ornamental value.
