Diervillas are becoming increasingly well-known in the U.K for their versatility, drought tolerance and a tough constitution that belies their elegant looks. This has motivated plant breeders to develop more garden-worthy varieties, and Diervilla ‘Honeybee’ is one of the best, with striking golden foliage that sets it apart from the usual purple-leaved forms, creating a striking colour accent in the landscape. This compact, deciduous shrub retains its golden colour from spring until autumn, when the foliage develops a copper-red glow. In addition, in early summer it produces clusters of nectar-rich, fragrant yellow flowers that bees and butterflies go mad for! So it’s great for wildlife too!  Low growing, it is perfect for low-maintenance front gardens where it will cope with challenging dry soils and thrive in sun or partial shade. Alternatively, plant it into a large pot and use it to brighten up a shady corner on the patio. Height: 80cm (31in). Spread: 100cm (39in).
