Grows in morning sun and under an elm. It blooms earlier than any shrub in the yard (Feb.- March) and it has great sculptural qualities like a fountain flowing. Gets big.

I have grown this plant in back yard for 4yrs. It is huge, but has never bloomed. The soil is pretty much red soil, but I do try to fertilize occasionally. What can I do to help bloom? Cannot move, too large.

This plant seems to thrive here in our microclimate just as well. We're nearby a big waterbody, thus the microclimate perhaps a little difference than most in our zone. This plant which I just have it properly I.D.ed was here for years, a charming little yellow bloomer, well behaves. And is tolerance of neglect in a woodland setting.

The little yellow flowers smell like carnations, and the plant grows easily and blooms spring and fall in my yard
