Kodiak® ‘Black’ (‘SMNORSF’) Bush-honeysuckle is one of the newer Proven Winners® introductions of this colorful adaptable native shrub. The name comes from the dark bronzy burgundy new growth which makes a dramatic setting for the sulfur yellow flowers which are produced at the tips of the branches for most of the summer. Diervilla rivularis Kodiak® ‘Black’ has something to offer everyone: native, colorful foliage in summer and fall, flowers for pollinators and deer resistance.
