  1. Diervilla

    Bush Honeysuckle is genus of three species of deciduous shrubs in the family Caprifoliaceae, all indigenous to eastern North America. The genus is named after a French surgeon Dr. Marin Dierville, who introduced the plant to Europe around 1700. The bush honeysuckles are low in height, of small to medium diameter, and develop into colonies by means of spreading underground rhizomes. Their leaves are simple, opposite and either oval or lanceolate in shape with a toothed edge. The fall color varies between yellow, orange and red. Small tubular flowers, typically pale yellow, are produced in June and July. ⁕Diervilla sessilifolia – Southern bush honeysuckle ⁕Diervilla lonicera – Northern bush honeysuckle ⁕Diervilla rivularis – Mountain bush honeysuckle Other species formerly included in Diervilla are now treated in the genus Weigela. The bush honeysuckles are commonly confused with the common wild honeysuckle, or the Japanese honeysuckle, both members of the closely related genus Lonicera.
