Dwarf Honeysuckle - Diervilla lonicera
Also called Northern Bush Honeysuckle. This is a great alternative to the invasive Japanese Honeysuckle.
Features: Can handle that difficult situation, dry partial shade! Attracts birds and butterflies, good for mass plantings, woodland ground layer. Small tubular yellow flowers in June. Can be fast-growing and may need spring pruning. Beautiful yellow/orange/red fall color.
Light: Sun to partial shade
Soil: Dry to medium
Height: 2-3 feet; 3-5 wide
Blooms: Yellow trumpet flowers in late Spring are good for pollinators. It is not a true Honeysuckle and does not make berries.
