A fantastic way to get jaw-dropping fall color! Kodiak Orange diervilla (Diervilla sp.) is a selection of our North American native diervilla that exhibits extraordinary color, from the time the foliage starts to emerge in spring until the last blazing leaf drops in autumn. Look for pretty orange hues in the new growth all season, accompanied by an abundance of yellow trumpet flowers in summer. Fall is when it really shines, with a lit-from-within look at adds the perfect touch to your pollinator plantings. The flowers attract a number of pollinators, including butterflies and hummingbirds, and the foliage hosts the caterpillars of hummingbird moths.
