Design IdeasThis is a very old-fashioned flowering shrub that's making a comeback because few hardy plants can produce such orange-gold so early in the season. Plant as a single specimen in the back of shrub or perennial borders, where it will stand out while blooming and recede back the rest of the season. Use as foundation planting, along fence lines or to fill in a sideyard with seasonal changes. Belongs in every country or cottage garden.
Care Information
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.Pruning time: spring after flowering.
