A bright spot in the garden from spring to late fall.

Diervilla Firefly™

Bright yellow leaves with pumpkin orange highlights brighten the spring garden.

A native shrub found in wooded areas of the Appalachians, Diervilla is gaining in popularity due to the many contributions it makes to our landscapes.  This new introduction from the Bloomin’ Easy Program is no exception!  Firefly’s bright gold and orange foliage contrasts vibrantly against darker plants. Electric yellow flowers appear in late spring to really spark things up. And because it’s easy to grow, you’ll have more time to relax around the fire pit with friends.

Please note: We don't sell plants. Asking your local retailer or googling the plant name is the easiest way to find someone selling our plants.
