Tough, beautiful native Let’s face it. Sometime native plants just aren’t that pretty or are a little fussy. But here is a native that is both beautiful and easy! Kodiak Orange Diervilla (Kodiak™ Orange Diervilla rivularis ‘G2X88544’ PPAF) is a tough native plant that thrives in both sun and shade, AND is drought-tolerant. What a deal! This bush honeysuckle isn’t a true honeysuckle so it’s not invasive like many natives can be. It plays well with its garden neighbors, for sure. But don’t take that as it being a garden sissy. This shrub takes fall color seriously with its glowing orange fall foliage. It is like a beacon in the fall landscape. As a native, Kodiak Orange Diervilla is an ecofriendly alternative to a typical burning bush, which you might have in your landscape now. Fall isn’t the only season Kodiak Orange shines in, either. It boasts bright yellow flowers in early summer, too. Add to that deer-resistance, disease resistance and that it can even grow in dry shade and you have a most excellent landscape plant. Try a few in even your most challenging sites. You’ll be thrilled you did! * Dry shade tolerant (color is best with some sun) * Yellow flower clusters all summer * Glowing orange-red fall foliage.
Versatile Shrub Leaves Turn From Red to Green Kodiak Red Diervilla (Kodiak™ Red Diervilla rivularis ‘G2X885411’ PPAF) is a rugged native plant that has a great wild, but refined look. This plant is equally at home in your naturalized garden as well as your formal foundation planting. It does well in both sun and shade, and is drought-tolerant to boot. Like other diervilla, this bush honeysuckle isn’t a true honeysuckle which means that it’s not invasive like many native honeysuckles can be. This isn’t a shrinking violet in the garden, though. Kodiak Red starts out in spring with beautiful red leaves that fade to a pretty green. All the new growth throughout the year starts out red, too. It’s like Christmas all year! Kodiak Red sports light yellow flowers in early summer, too. What a great color show! It is also deer-resistant, disease resistant and grows in dry shade. Try it in your most challenging sites or for naturalizing, foundation plantings, hedges, wildlife gardens and mixed borders.
