Growth Fast growing

This hardy fast growing shrub is much loved for the profusion of garish yellow spring blossom- which is borne on last years wood. After flowering it looks rather dull - so plant at back of border. Deciduous 2.5m tall x 2m

Cultivation tips: This much planted hardy deciduous shrub will tolerate any half decent garden soil in sun or part shade, and is fully hardy just about everywhere. Ideal as an informal flowering hedge or for screening at the back of the border, prune to shape, but leave last years growth for flowers in late winter prefering instead to prune after flowering.
