    In winter, this upright, deciduous shrub has clusters of sweetly scented, bright yellow, spidery flowers clinging to bare twigs. In autumn, the bright green leaves turn soft yellow. A beautiful shrub for a woodland edge, or winter border or alongside a path, where its fragrance can be appreciated. The flowering twigs can be cut to perfume rooms in winter.

  • Garden care: In early spring remove any misplaced, crossing or diseased branches and apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted compost or manure around the base of the plant.
