    • Loving these shrubs since purchasing three from an independent nursery here in the Detroit area in May. What, if anything, do experienced owners of this shrub do to promote continuous blooming or re-blooming during the growing season? Pinch spent blooms? Deadhead? Light sheer? Or just leave them alone? Thanks!

    • We just planted this summer in a tiny little quart size. I’m impressed with this plant. It’s almost December, still has a lot of pretty yellow blooms and although supposed to be deciduous, it’s leaves are beautiful deep green. It’s still growing and from a little 3 inch size plant we ordered from the website, it’s almost a foot tall. Impressive!
