Dramatic Foliage Spring Through Fall

What could be more captivating than the sight of burgundy/black foliage in your yard? The eye can't help but be drawn to such dramatic color, so different from the expected greens and bright flower tones usually present.

Kodiak Black Bush provides that arresting display, exhibiting deep burgundy hues so dark that they're almost black in tone. The glossy foliage is most impressive in full sun (or part shade), and Kodiak Black Bush is one of the best shade-tolerant shrubs you'll find on the market today.

The most intense foliage color appears in spring and fall, with autumn tones adopting hues of vivid red. As if the remarkable leaves weren't enough, clusters of yellow, trumpet-shaped flowers appear in summer. Each delicate blossom features protruding, white stamens for an additional decorative note. The effect of the yellow against the deep, contrasting color of the leaves is stunning.

Your Kodiak Black Bush Honeysuckle is a deciduous, multi-stemmed shrub with a dense nature and mounding habit. Kodiak Black Bush is adaptive to a variety of soils and quite hardy. Deer leave it alone and it requires little care from you. Kodiak Black Bush would make a great foundation plant, or would add some contrast to your perennial bed. These are also quite stunning when planted en masse in a naturalized area.

Kodiak Black Bush Honeysuckle is one of the Proven Winners series so you can be assured of its performance in your own yard year after year!

  • Summer flowers
  • Fall interest
  • Great for erosion control
