KODIAK® Orange Diervilla Honeysuckle
Diervilla 'G2X88544' USPP 27,548
Diervilla sounds like the birthplace of a werewolf, but it is actually a pretty cool native shrub (native to the US). Referred to as the ‘street fighter’ of the plant world, Kodiak Diervilla is a zone 4 Proven Winners native bush honeysuckle variety. Featuring all the qualities of the BEST life partner, it is tough, hardy, reliable, and no-fuss, suitable to take to any party and to plant in any growing condition. It even comes in two colors—Kodiak Red and Kodiak Orange.
When you think about it, orange isn’t a very common color in the garden. Can bees and butterflies not see it? We don’t have an entomologist here to ask, but it’s ok. We know that every garden needs a pop of color, and the Kodiak Orange Diervilla delivers. New growth emerges orange in spring and turns reddish orange in fall, and features yellow flowers all summer long. Diervilla can tolerate all types of light and difficult soils, so is a good option for that problem spot in the garden. Use in a mixed bed or contrast its color with the blue foliage of a conifer or spruce. Try the Kodiak Diervilla—the mama bear of garden plants—in your garden today!
