  • Deciduous suckering shrub
  • Variegated leaves
  • Small yellow flowers
  • Sun or part shade

Because of the form and yellow colouring of its flowers, Diervilla sessilifolia is also known as bush honeysuckle but it doesn’t share its namesake’s climbing habit. This hardy deciduous shrub comes from the south east USA, where it thrives in woodland, forming dense thickets. The variety Diervilla sessilifolia 'Cool Splash'™ lights up shady areas of the garden with its attractive green and white variegated foliage and small yellow flowers in summer.

Grow Diervilla sessilifolia 'Cool Splash'™ in a woodland setting where it will spread by suckering, making it a good plant for banks or slopes where it will help to stabilise the soil. It will also tolerate sunny conditions and is best grown in fertile, well-drained soil. A medium sized shrub, Diervilla sessilifolia 'Cool Splash'™ has a height and spread of 1.5 metres.

How you will receive your plants: 

Selected by our team of experts and sent from our nursery, you will receive your plant in a pot, ready to plant out. 

Can’t plant straight away? 

Place the pot in a sheltered spot outdoors and water regularly to keep the soil moist. 

Planting in the ground: 

Dig a hole slightly wider than the rootball of the plant. Place the plant in the hole so that it sits at the same level in the ground as it did in the pot. When backfilling, mix in a soil improver such as well-rotted farmyard manure. Firm the soil around the plant and water well. 

Planting in containers: 

Choose a pot with good drainage holes. Place stones or crocks (bits of broken pottery) at the bottom of the pot to stop the drainage holes clogging up. Use a good quality compost. Feed and water container-grown plants regularly.
