Gentleman’s Buttonhole

Kerria japonicaBetween winter and spring is a great time to trim what mother used to call Gentleman’s Buttonhole species: Kerria japonica.  All the long sticks are potential new plants.  I’ve pushed plenty part way into a huge pot of well used damp compost and a few into a garden clients border.  It’s such a beautiful shrub of pretty yellow orange pompom flowers and one of hubby’s favourites.
