Product Description

A bushy, deciduous shrub with very dark purple foliage which contrasts well with the abundance of yellow flowers in June, Diervilla rivularis 'Troja Black' makes an ideal specimen shrub for any garden.

Also known as the Georgia Bush Honeysuckle because of the shape of the flowers, it's a superb way to bring colour into your garden, the double-lipped blooms compliment perfectly the purple-bronze leaves, which turn deep red in autumn.

As the flowers age, they turn a delightful yellow-coral and are a magnet to pollinators, especially butterflies.

A new introduction, Troja Black spreads by sending up suckers which eventually form a decent sized clump, perfect for a massed planting.

Supplied as an established plant, ready for immediate planting and will eventually reach approx. H1.5 x W1m.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for Diervilla rivularis 'Troja Black'

  • Pot-grown shrubs can be planted at any time of the year as long as the soil is not waterlogged or frozen.
  • Shrub roots generally tend to spread out rather than down, so dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill one the shrub is in place.
  • We've found that a square hole is better than a round one as the new roots, once they reach the edges tend to grow in a circle round the circumference of the hole whereas when they reach the corners of a square hole, they find it easier to grow through.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove your Diervilla from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Place your shrub in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.

Aftercare Advice for your Georgia Bush Honeysuckle

  • If you’re planting in spring or summer, water 'Troja Black' well and regularly for the first few months.
  • Once planted, keep the area free of competing weeds and grass for the first couple of growing seasons.
  • Apply a generous layer of mulch around the base of the plant after planting and thereafter annually.

Pruning Advice for Diervilla 'Troja Black'

  • To prune, cut back to a low, permanent framework each spring as the buds are beginning to swell, removing any branches that are dead, damaged or diseased.
