  • Native to North America
  • Fast growing
  • Trouble-free

Eco-friendly alternative to burning bush! Kodiak® Orange diervilla pushes fall color to the limits with its transformation to glowing orange. New growth emerges a showy russet, accompanied by bright yellow flowers in summer. This fast growing, vigorous North American native is unbothered by pests or diseases. Sometimes known as bush honeysuckle, which is a bit of a misnomer, so we prefer using diervilla as the common name.
