This deciduous shrub is prized for its seasons of interest and durability. Bush honeysuckle is drought tolerant and deer resistant as well as tolerant of full sun and dry shade/part shade. Clusters of trumpet-like yellow flowers appear in early summer against its reddish-purple foliage and by autumn, the entire shrub seems to glow in hues of red and orange. It has little to no pest or disease issues and is not invasive like its cousins. Although it does its best in moist soils, it can be grown almost anywhere in the landscape and actually does well in dense clays.
