What is that Yellow Flowering Shrub?

Company News

We are pleading for spring to arrive.  We received our first small shipment of early spring bloomers and adding to our inventory over the next few weeks. Our first new shipment of indoor plants will arrive March 2nd and hope to have Meyer’s lemon trees on the truck. In the meantime, hello Forsythia, with your tiny little buds waiting to burst forth!

At For Garden’s Sake, we absolutely love adding this to our Durham landscapes.   It has a beautiful yellow bloom that covers the stems from March to April, handles full sun to part shade, loves well drained soil and will grow anywhere from 6-9 feet tall and wide. It is perfect for a hedge line with its dark green leaves but is deciduous.   In the fall, enjoy watching the leaves turn yellow with a tinge of purple. Such a delightful addition to any Chapel Hill lawn and landscape!

On a side note, we have been singing this in the office.

Rain, rain, go away

You’ve wrecked our schedule another day.

We have been running lots of appointments for drainage in Chapel Hill, Durham and Cary landscapes. It isn’t even May yet. You know…when April flowers bring May showers. Good grief. We are going to float away.
