<i>Corylopsis pauciflora</i>

This choice delicate shrub will grace a woodland garden with the scent and sight of primrose yellow blooms on 3 in. racemes. The bristle-toothed leaves, which cluster densely on gently arching branches, are smaller than others in the genus. Long lasting as a cut flower, Buttercup Winter Hazel is irresistible with an understory of early flowering blue Brunnera.

Blooms March–April.

Size: 5' 0" high x 8' 0" wide.

Hardy to zone 6.

Though Winter Hazel's dangling chains of primrose yellow flowers are always a much anticipated, late winter delicacy, this new artful cultivar offers an additional radiant bonus. Lovely butterscotch colors bathe the rounded deciduous foliage, which emerges with red and orange tints, matures quickly to canary yellow and dons saffron and pumpkin shades for fall. All this lambent splendor embellishes layered, zig-zagging and gracefully arching branches. Favored by hummingbirds and bees, ‘Aurea’ can be situated in a shady open setting, where it sheds light on deep green companion shrubs and perennial shade aficionados such as Omphalodes, Corydalis or ferns.

Blooms March–April

Size: 6' 0" high x 6' 0" wide.

Hardy to zone 6.
