Discover the enchanting Diervilla lonicera, a plant commonly dubbed as Dwarf Bush Honeysuckle, Northern Bush Honeysuckle, or Yellow-Flowered Upright Honeysuckle. This native deciduous shrub, hailing from the northeastern United States and Canada, showcases a stunning similarity to the true honeysuckles, with its classic genus Lonicera look. It grows to an optimal height of 2-4 ft and its branches lie close to the ground, creating a gorgeous spread of fibrous roots. As the seasons pass, the initially green leaves deepen into a dark red. Come July and August, the shrub adorns itself with pretty pale yellow flowers, while preparing its dry, woody seeds for dispersal by September. The plant boasts an intriguing floral biology, with protogynous flowers, well-adapted for pollination. It flourishes in varied conditions such as cool climates, rocky terrains, and in dry or infertile soils, making it a symbol of resilience. It regenerates rapidly from subterranean stems post fires, explaining its dominance in fire-prone areas. It's wide-spread across North America with no endangerment threats, while also being known for its traditional use in herbal cough remedies. With this bush, enjoy the attraction of diverse fauna, from deer and moose to pollinators like bumble bees, and many bird species.
