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: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: vigorous
  • Flowering period: March to April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This upright deciduous, spreading shrub produces a mass of large, single, buttercup-like golden yellow flowers on graceful arching stems in March and April. Ideal for brightening a shrub border or woodland edge, it copes well in full sun and partial shade and tolerates extremely poor soils.

  • Garden care: Prune in late spring after flowering, removing one in three stems to ground level. Cut back the remaining flowered stems to different levels to encourage flowering shoots at different heights and remove any suckering stems. Apply a 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch around the base of the plant.
