Diervilla lonicera ‘Copper’
at Digging Dog

Diervilla

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.

‘Copper’s vigorous, low mounding form makes a colorful statement with red-tinted stems, delicate lemon yellow flowers and opposite lance-shaped, deciduous green leaves that transmute copper shades when unfurling and red and purple hues come autumn.

Undeterred by varying soil pH and excessive moisture or drought, the highly enduring Bush Honeysuckle can serve as a honey plant, while underground stolons control erosion. It’s the best choice for dry alkaline sites and looks attractive just about anywhere else.

Blooms June – August.

Size: 4' high x 4'–5' wide; hardy to zone 4.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
