Copper’ Bush Honeysuckle
Diervilla Lonicera ‘Copper’
Here is a tough, deer resistant, North American native shrub that definitely deserves more praise! ‘Copper’ Bush Honeysuckle is a fast grower, excellent for mass plantings, slopes rain gardens and wildlife plantings. Their copper-red new foliage matures to a lovely bronze-green and is free from disease and pest problems. In mid-summer small yellow trumpet-like flowers begin to bloom attracting hummingbirds and butterflies. When autumn arrives ‘Copper’ produces layers of color in the foliage from yellow-gold to orange and red. What a lovely, low maintenance shrub! They grow in full sun to shade and prefer sandy or dry soils making them very hardy, very versatile, and drought tolerant once established. Mounded, arching/spreading branches produce mature plants about 2-3’ tall by 3-4’ wide. ‘Copper’ Bush Honeysuckle you are a beautiful plant!
