Maintenance Notes
Diervilla needs very little care - if you'd like to prune it, do so in early spring. It does not require regular pruning, but if it starts to get a little sparse as it matures, cut it back to the ground in early spring for a fresh start.

Uses Notes The long, straight stems and neat foliage of diervilla makes it an excellent filler for cut flower arrangements.
