I would really love to plant honeysuckle hedges in my front walkway. What species of honeysuckle would be best? Bush, evergreen? Is it available in my area? Would it grow well with direct or indirect sunlight? Or both?

The best honeysuckle for your gardening region is Lonicera sempervirens which is also called Coral Honeysuckle, Evergreen Honeysuckle, Trumpet Honeysuckle, Woodbine, Scarlet Trumpet, Red Honeysuckle, and Red Woodbine. It is evergreen and it is native to your region so it will grow well and it will grow in full to partial sunshine. You'll need to prune the vining stems to encourage lots of new stems which will make the plant full and bushy. Best wishes with your new hedge!
