Description

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.

Growing Tips

Diervilla is one of the most shade tolerant shrubs, however, blooming and foliage color are best with some sun. With its very vivid foliage, especially in fall, it's a nice alternative to burning bush.
