    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.
