Description: This cultivar was introduced by the Arnold Arboretum many years ago. It is an upright growing plant with bright yellow flowers which normally bloom the end of February in warm winters right through the month of March. We have one in our garden that now must be over 12 feet tall and has become a spectacular sight every spring. A bit of color that time of year is worth a hundred times that amount in June.
