|Lore||A native of the southeastern United States, D. rivularis is found along bluffs, cliffs and otherwise rocky terrain of the wooded areas of the southern region of the Appalachians. Diervilla are sometimes referred to as Bush Honeysuckle, because of the similarity of the trumpet-shaped flowers. Much like lonicera, diervilla blooms contain tasty honey-flavored nectar, but diervilla flowers do not have a detectable fragrance. More importantly, diervilla is not invasive like some honeysuckles, and a safe choice for planting anywhere.|
