Can anyone ID this one? It gets to be 5-6'tall covered with blooms. It's blooming now in zone 6, bloomtime will be over shortly. Thanks.

my kerria japonica is much much different from this one. Mine is small, very full, more than a double, it looks like a rose. the leaves look the same.

Wow Baa, you're super-fast! Thanks bunches my Mom will be glad to know what she has and so am I. I just love this bush and so does she, it was on her property when she bought it and the house is 100 yrs old so who knows how long it's been there. It was being choked out by honeysuckle but now she has 3 bushes of it.

tiG, this plant was new to me last year. I was so excited when it bloomed that I wanted to add it to the data base, but it is already there. I believe the one in there is the double flowered one, grandiflora maybe?? I don't remember the exact name and am too lazy to look right now. LOL

Badseed I can see their point so I haven't answered too much on this forum lately.

TiG yes you have Kerria japonica Pleniflora, really nice shrub I think.

WvD Kerrias were very popular during Victorian times so you may well have descendants of a plant from one of the first gardens there

Baa, I have a little secret. When I come here, I only look at the question and the picture and see if I know what it is. If I do, I am proud of me for doing something with my brain and not letting it go to mush. Most of the time, the answer is there before I get there and that is fine. I usually don't post anything because I agree or don't have a clue! LOL We can't all sit around and wait for someone else to answer or we might never get answers. :) I say do what you do best!

Baa, that's nice to know about the Kerrias being around since victorian times :~) Wow, the precedents(sp?) to this plant could have come over on one of the first shiploads of settlers!
