Dwarf Bush Honeysuckle
Small Ornamental Shrub
The Dwarf Bush Honeysuckle is a small deciduous bush with ornamental features. One would look great as a specimen planting, but several would look outstanding as a mass planting in the foreground of taller plantings.
There are few things more delightful than a honeysuckle in the yard, and the Dwarf Bush Honeysuckle is a way to have several without the need for a lot of room or a climbing structure.
Your Dwarf Bush Honeysuckle is a vigorous, fast-growing shrub. It’s small, only about four feet tall with a spreading nature. Bees, butterflies and birds all love it, and hummingbirds will soon consider your yard their favorite place in the neighborhood.
The flowers are simply irresistible to many creatures, and you’ll feel the same way once you experience their unique beauty and alluring scent.
The exotic, tubular flowers with protruding stamens scatter their yellow brilliance amid the bronze-tipped, green foliage in late spring/early summer. You’ll also love the sweet scent they send drifting on the afternoon breeze.
Fall color can be inconsistent, but you can likely expect to be impressed by the red-bronze hues your Honeysuckle leaves will adopt for their fall display.
The bark also tends to be somewhat exfoliating, revealing an inner orange hue that is lovely in the winter.
The Dwarf Bush Honeysuckle is an extraordinary ornamental shrub that offers a lot for the small amount of space it requires. Scatter several around your yard to draw pollinators to your yard, or group them together and magnify the impact of this beautiful compact shrub.
