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
