‘Kodiak® Orange’ Diervilla is a stunning selection of Diervilla. Native to the northeastern United States, Eastern Canada, and the Great Lakes Region, the native species Divervilla is a densely branched, deciduous shrub found in dry, rocky, open woodland areas and thickets. It thrives in average, dry to medium moisture, well-drained soils, in full sun to part shade, and tolerates drought. This native cultivar thrives in most soils and sunlight levels, but grows best in cool summer climates. It grows fast and reaches its mature size within 1 to 2 years, and its suckers can be divided for plant propagation. It does not require trimming, but it can be pruned in spring after flowering if you want to shape its form.

Diervilla will thrive just about anywhere in your yard - to frame a cottage garden or meadowscape, planted to fill out a hedge for home curb appeal, to anchor a perennial garden border, or naturalized beneath taller trees in woodland gardens. Diervilla is a good native plant alternative to Burning Bush (Euonymus alatus) for its bright fall color. Diervilla, known by the common name Bush Honeysuckle, is not to be confused with invasive non-native honeysuckles which are sometimes called by the same common name.
