    Features

    Rugged beauty for the toughest spots in your landscape.

    Kodiak® Red diervilla is a native flowering shrub that looks great while shrugging off shade and problem soils. New growth emerges in spring with a deep burgundy tone, and turns vivid red in fall. During summer, leaves have a red edge and clusters of small yellow flowers appear all season. It's a simple but beautiful way to add low-maintenance color to parts of your yard that have been difficult to landscape.

    Top reasons to grow Kodiak Red diervilla:

    - One of the toughest landscape plants around!

    - Foliage emerges red and turns bright red in fall.

    - Yellow flowers all summer long.

    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.

    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.
