Product Details

Product Details

The large, 5-petal blossoms of Kerria japonica 'Golden Guinea' might be named for glittering coins but to our eyes they suggest Buttercups, and plenty of them. The single blooms appear in multitudes in spring, festooning a medium-size, deciduous shrub that also features lance-shaped, fresh green foliage that is handsomely veined. These rugged plants don’t interest deer, and they tolerate dry or wet soil and even heavy shade.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.

Latin Name Pronunciation: kare'-ee-ah

Kerria japonica, native to Eastern Asia and the only species in the genus Kerria, belongs to the Rosaceae (Rose) family. This easily grown, adaptable shrub displays showy, bright yellow flowers for two to three weeks in spring on slender stems that remain green in winter. Its fine foliage and upright, arching habit are attractive in shady borders and especially effective massed as a low, informal hedge.

Light: Kerria japonica prefers partial shade but can tolerate sunny locations if the ground is kept evenly moist. Avoid afternoon sun.

Fertilizer/Soil: Plants perform best in moderately fertile, well-drained soil. One light application of an organic fertilizer such as seaweed extract or fish emulsion can be given in early spring. Where soil is too rich, growth can be excessive with fewer blossoms.

Watering: Prefers moist, well-drained soil.

Pruning: Remove dead branches at any time. To rejuvenate an overgrown shrub, cut stems to around 12in high after flowering.
