Cheeful yellow flowers appear on bare stems in winter and early spring and really brighten up a dark winter day. This vigorous climber is easy to grow and easy to train on wires or a trellis but it looks just as attractive left to scramble freely over low walls. Bright green stems even in winter and dark green shoots add to the appeal of this lovely climber. Give it space to express itself and prune regularly.

Garden Care: Prune back after flowering to strong buds or young lower branches. On older plants cut back about a quarter of the old shoots to the base.

This deciduous wall shrub has small, mid-green leaves. Single trumpet-shaped bright yellow flowers are produced throughout winter and into early spring before the new leaves unfurl.
