This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: any moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: March to April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A splendid, medium sized deciduous shrub with mid- to dark green foliage. Masses of rich yellow, four petalled flowers smother the branches in spring. Excellent for covering walls, fits nicely into shrub borders and can be used as a specimen shrub. This plant can also be used for hedging.

  • Garden care: After flowering has finished, prune out one or two old main stems at the base. Thin out crowded shoots from the centre and cut back flowered shoots to a strong bud.
