This is a cross of garden origin between D. sessilifolia x D. lonicera found sometime in the 1850's. Because of its medium size and the fact that it can tolerate drier sites, Diervilla x splendens is a versatile shrub that is useful both at stabilizing slopes and as part of the understory of large trees. It is a naturally colorful shrub with bronze highlights in its leaves and red in its stems. Although not showy, the clusters of yellow tubular flowers complement this mix of colors perfectly. Gold colors the leaves in the autumn.

Early summer to late summer.  3-5 ft. x 4-6 ft.

Yellow flowers
