Oh, thank you very much. I saw where someone had posted it as a rose, and I knew it was not a 'real' rose, but it's interesting that this plants is sometimes referred to as a Japanese rose. I've always loved this plant, but never knew what it was. Do you have them?

I have a lovely one. Blooms off and on mostly on all season. I found it in a pot when I bought another plant some years ago. They sya it's easy to grow from cuttings but I haven't tried. I have shared some divisions though. So far I've had no problems with it at all. Even when the aphids infested the lupinen next to it and later when they got powdery mildew none of it bothered my Kerria.

I have the double and single blooming of this. I love it. But it is supposed to be invasive. I put it in a bed of its own and just let it take over that bed. This is the second year I"ve had it.

BF. That's really a pretty yellow. Mama used to grow Kerria but that house is sold. Actually I first thought you had a Mum by looking at the leaves.
