Diervilla – Kodiak® Red
Dead-Heading Not Necessary
Fun Facts Diervilla is sometimes called "bush honeysuckle," and though it is related to honeysuckle, diervilla flowers are not fragrant. However, more importantly, diervilla is NOT invasive, so it's a safe choice for planting anywhere.
Native to North America
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.
