Diervilla genus (Bush honeysuckle). There are about 3 species of deciduous shrubs from North America in this genus. They will produce yellow, honey-suckle like flowers in the summer in axillary or terminal clusters. The plants will rarely exceed 1m. They are fully hardy and will tolerate full light or partial shade with moderately fertile, well drained soil. For a more shapely shrub, you should remove 2 to 3 year old stems in the winter or after flowering. Propagation is by semi ripe cuttings in late summer or by hardwood cuttings in the autumn.
