Northern Bush Honeysuckle


Northern Bush Honeysuckle

Diervilla lonicera 2-4' x 2-5' Also called Dwarf Bush Honeysuckle. Don’t be fooled by the common name: it isn’t really a honeysuckle.

Every time we’ve visited the Diervilla in grower Sharon Turner’s garden, it’s buzzing with bumblebees. Five little bright yellow petals on each tubular flower curl open and away, an invitation to insects, hummingbirds, butterflies and garden tourists. Clusters of flowers form in the axils of new growth. Extended-season bloomer. Long pointed lustrous dark green leaves emerge with a hint of bronze.

Good for erosion control or mass planting. We’ve become fond of the wild specimens popping up around our homesteads.

Full sun to light shade. Tolerates even the poorest soils, but if you want it to naturalize, give it rich moist soil. Pest and disease free. Native to eastern North America. Z3. (1-3' bare-root plants)
