Co­ry­lop­sis Pau­ci­flora

This slow grow­ing medi­um­sized de­cid­u­ous shrub is prized for its clus­ters of del­i­cate sweetly scented prim­rose yel­low flow­ers which ap­pear on bare stems in early spring and last for sev­eral weeks, putting on a won­der­ful dis­play. The leaves un­furl as the flow­ers start to fade; flushed bronze at first ma­tur­ing to a bright green, then in au­tumn they turn a warm yel­low be­fore leaf fall. Co­ry­lop­sis thrive in sun or par­tial shade planted in moist but well drained acidic soil rich in or­ganic mat­ter, they dis­like wa­ter­log­ging so poorly drained soil should be im­proved be­fore plant­ing.
