HABIT:  Fountain like growth, bare branches covered with bright yellow bell-shaped flowers in early spring. Flowers last about 2 weeks. Native to China. ‘Linwood Gold’ and ‘Spectabilis’ are two excellent choices of the many available cultivars.

CULTURE:  Any soil, sun or shade. Better flower production in full sun. Good drainage is important. Prune after blooms fade.

USES:  Specimen, background plant, yellow spring color and cut flowers. Best to use with evergreen plants, since winter look is bare and uninteresting.

PROBLEMS: None that are too serious.
