This elegant shrub has arching stems creating a graceful vase-like habit and, in late winter, the display of pendulous, creamy yellow flowers is a lovely precursor to springtime and provides for early foraging bees. Each chain has 10 to 20 dainty, bell-shaped blossoms. The deciduous foliage is typically yellow to golden in autumn.
