Kerria japonica Description
This hardy shrub is popular for its late winter and early spring colour. If it is yellow flowers you are after then you cant go far wrong with Kerria. This variety is a double so the blossom forms into yellow ruffled balls.
Whether in full sun or part shade and on a variety of soils Kerria delivers an early splash of blossom, but then looks rather mundane for the remainder of the year.
