Uses Notes: 

Great for landscape use and small enough to use in containers. It works well in mixed containers and perennial borders

Maintenance Notes: 

Prefers well-drained, moist soil. Prune immediately after flowering. Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer specialized for trees and shrubs. Follow the label for recommended rate of application.

Add season long color to the garden with this easy growing, bright beauty!

Numerous pearl-like buds burst into attractive star-shaped flowers in spring. When the flowers have faded, this plant continues to shine with its bright yellow foliage. Growth is strong, but compact to create a wonderful small shrub that is equally at home in the shrub border as it is in a perennial one. Adds color and vibrancy to any garden.

  • Rather boring plant. Flowers are tiny and short-lived. Does nothing else the other 11 months. For the price, it's not worth it.

    Marginally Adequate Performed below expectations but may be willing to try again.

  • This has been one of the best shrubs I've ever bought. Happened upon it at a small nursery that is no longer in operation. I planted 3 together and it has made one beautiful large shrub on the northeast side of my front porch. Very low maintenance and easy to prune. Always get compliments on it and questions as to where it can be bought.

    Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.

  • This has been an awesome plant! I have one in my woodland garden. It gets very little sun, but blooms beautifully. The foliage is a beautiful celery green. I want about a dozen more!

    Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.

  • Terrible plant. Pretty one month out of twelve. I have fertilized and watered. Have to cut back each fall. No growth.wish I had bought them somewhere I could return.

    Unsatisfied Did not survive, inferior performance or did not bloom well - won't grow again.
