A showy, deciduous shrub with a broad, rounded outline on an upright form that absolutely explodes with masses of soft yellow flowers to herald the arrival of spring. Use as a background shrub in borders or as a spring accent in the garden, that will blend in with mixed perennials as the green toothy foliage replaces the spring blooms.
