Beautiful yellow flowers beginning in mid February in warm years and mid March in cold years. Blooms last about a month or so. One of the best smelling blooms in our yard. I love the smell and frequently put my nose up to the flowers to take a whiff. Grows at a moderate pace and I'm expecting this shrub to become quite large. Leaves turn a magnificent yellow in the fall. Our specimen gets part sun and it seems happy. Late last month there were a couple of spotty blooms on our large plant. I just couldn't resist sniffing them.
