Very compact, almost dwarf, densely branched small shrub. Abundantly produced bright golden yellow flowers in March and April. The deep green leaves start emerging during the flowering period.

Any moderately fertile, moist, well drained soil in full sun or light dappled shade. Easy to grow and not fussy.
Prune after flowering, reducing new shoots and cut back some of the old shoots to the base - may only be required every few years with this cultivar.

Greenwood cuttings in late spring or semi-ripe cuttings in late summer.

Excellent for small spaces, can be grown in containers.
