Diervilla lonicera is a low growing shrub up to 1 m tall and with a wide shape; it also forms suckers. The yellow trumpet-shaped flowers that appear in the spring will attract all sorts of pollinators: bumblebees, butterflies and hummingbirds. It is larval host for the Fawn Sphinx Moth.
The dark green, glossy leaves are turning to yellow-orange or reddish in the fall, depending on the sun exposure.
A highly adaptable, drought tolerant, useful native shrub. It can be used as a specimen or to form a low height hedge and for naturalized areas, especially in woodland situations.
Germination: sown in the fall – cold/moist stratification.
