Kerria japonica


Once established in your garden, Kerria japonica requires very little care or work. Every spring this hardworking shrub bursts into bloom with single or double golden-yellow flowers, making it a perfect companion for daffodils and other spring-blooming bulbs. It tolerates a range of soil and moisture conditions and needs only an occasional pruning to keep it in shape. Don't fertilize this shrub too generously -- it will promote leafy growth but few flowers. Kerria will also grow in full sun, but the flowers have a tendency to fade with little protection.
