Diervilla sessilifolia 'Butterfly' is a vigorous, dense, spreading, suckering, deciduous shrub with reddish, arching stems and simple, ovate, rich green leaves. Small clusters of tiny, yellow, trumpet-shaped flowers, coral when mature, bloom in late spring and summer for about 6 to 8 weeks. It may bloom again in October. Flowers are attractive to bees and butterflies and are followed by oblong fruits. Diervilla sessilifolia 'Butterfly' can tolerate a wide range of soil types, even poor ones, but thrives in humus-rich, consistently moist, well-drained soils. It prefers full sun, but also grows well in partial shade. Once established, tolerant of drought. Resistant to frost and very low temperatures. Generally, pest-free and disease-free. Low maintenance plant. Bush Honeysuckle 'Butterfly' is a tough and resilient shrub, perfect for mixed and shrub borders or banks and slopes for erosion control. Great as a groundcover or for foundation plantings. Ideal for wilder areas where it can spread freely. Suitable for growing in containers.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
