Diervilla lonicera (Dwarf Honeysuckle)

This small native is a densely branched, suckering shrub. Yellow, trumpet-shaped flowers.

In addition to our native honeysuckle, there are three invasive non-native honeysuckle species: Tartarian¬†(Lonicera tatarica), Morrow’s (L. morrowii), and Amur (L. maackii). Do not buy these invasives and if you already have them, make plans to replace them with interesting native shrubs.
