Japanese Kerria

Kerria japonica

A pleasing combination of tough and graceful qualities makes Japanese kerria a welcome plant in a mixed border or informal hedge. Its nearly leafless stems are decorated with roselike flowers in midspring. The numerous yellow blossoms are eye-catching and a perfect complement to a river of color-drenched tulips or other spring bulbs. It has graceful arching stems, and the green twigs keep their color through winter. The plant's bright green leaves turn a pretty shade of yellow in fall.

Notably cold-hardy, Japanese kerria grows best in part shade or full shade and moist, well-drained soil. Prune it in the spring after flowering.
