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

Blazing color on a native plant. The newest addition to the Kodiak® diervilla series, Kodiak® Red diervilla offers attractive red spring and autumn foliage, with red tones on new growth all summer long. Bright yellow flowers appear from late spring through fall. 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. Vivid fall foliage, particularly in fall, makes it a nice alternative to burning bush.
