Diervilla 'SMNDRSF' (Kodiak® Black Diervilla)
This is an up and coming ornamental shrub we believe. Native to a good bit of the eastern and Midwest United States it grows to 3-4' or so and about as wide. Small yellow flowers are second row to the black/purple new growth of Kodiak® Black. A few other worth mentioning tidbits are it being drought tolerant, performs in the sun or shade, and the deer seem to leave it alone. We will have these in our evaluation program this year to keep a close eye on it. Let us know what you're seeing in your garden too!
