A large, fast-growing shrub that produces panacles of sweetly scented, tuberous golden flowers almost year-round. Some seed-grown plants will have an orange tinge to the blooms. It is an excellent shrub for our area, quick to grow and easily trained into an espalier or pruned to the desired height. The top growth may be bitten back by frost, but will quickly rebound in the spring.
