A frost-hardy whipcord species with olive green to golden brown stems, a particularly bright golden cultivar. The shrub grows to about 18" high and 3' wide. The Inflorescences of about 10 white flowers are rarely seen in cultivation. Do not prune this species unless absolutely necessary as it may lead to dieback. Zones 6-10.
