Golden Bush Honeysuckle
Named after a French surgeon called Dierville who introduced the plant to Europe in the early 1700s, this small staunch genus counts Honeysuckle and Weigela among its cousins and calls the southeastern U.S. its home.
Blessed with a Midas touch and copious nectar, this marvelous golden-hued Diervilla bears loose terminal clusters of 2-lipped tubular yellow blooms that mesmerize bees and butterflies. Masterminded by Dutch nurseryman William de Bruijn, ‘Honeybee’s attractive lance-shaped deciduous leaves promise gleaming accents for containers, mixed borders or along pathways, and chartreuse tones for shady nooks. The compact bushy habit touts a resilient and amenable constitution, appreciating well-drained sites, yet enduring poor soil, cold winters, occasional dry spells and either sun or shade.
Size: 3' 0" – 3-1/2' high x 3' 0" – 3-1/2' wide.
Hardy to zone 4.
