One of the loveliest winterhazels we have come across, to under 10 ft tall with butterscotch-yellow leaves, tinted orange where they meet sun, and pale yellow flowers in mid winter -- all managed with the same grace we have come to expect from the species. Still rare but should be much less so. We suggest dappled shade, occasional summer water where dry, and decently drained soil. Frost hardy in USDA zone 6.

Not only do yellow flowers brighten any shady corner in EARLY spring, but the bright-yellow leaves that follow; plant this delightful 6' x 6' flowering shrub in a cool spot to delay flowers; resembles C.'Golden Spring' PSh/Med

Stunning yellow foliage with red highlights on the new growth. Fragrant primrose yellow flowers appear in early spring before the leaves emerge. Prefers part shade.
