This is my earliest blooming shrub, from early January through end of February (Pacific Northwest, Zone 8). It blooms before it leafs out, and has no fragrance. It has a sprawly weepy type of growth, and will root wherever it contacts soil. I have it growing along a fence, which gives it some support. I always look forward to this early harbinger of spring.
