Buy Diervilla rivularis Honeybee ('Diwibru01') (PBR) bush honeysuckle: Drought tolerant once established

This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A showy, low maintenance shrub, which once established, will practically thrive on neglect. Recently bred in the Netherlands, it has golden foliage, which is said to retain its colouring even in shadier conditions (although we suspect it may become greener when not grown in full sun). From early summer, it also produces clusters of yellow flowers, which will help attract bees and butterflies into the garden. Tough and tolerant, it will cope in a wide range of settings - including dry shade.

  • Garden care: Cut back to a low, permanent framework each spring as the buds are beginning to swell, and apply a generous layer of mulch around the base of the plant.

Early days - but it looks promising

I'm always looking for tough cost effective shrubs to specify for the Elderly, and bought this one for myself to test it. It appeals because of its butterfly attracting attributes. It has survived the winter and is burgeoning. I will not cut it back as per the maintenance instructions because I know this will not happen when in the Elderly Care garden. I hope it will thrive on a low maintenance routine. I'm very hopeful.

Stunning little shrub. Arrived very healthy and was planted straight into the border where there's little shelter. Still in flower - amazing. Will definitely be getting more
