This plant forms a rounded bush up to 4M tall with a relatively open habit. Racemes of bright yellow flowers, the colour and texture of buttercup petals, from autumn through winter. S. corymbosa is included in this section as, though it can grow to 4M, it is really a bush and not a tree under a normal pruning regime.
This is a spectacular plant in autumn in Karin’s Garden, and it could usefully be planted more widely. It is hardy in our climate, relative pest and disease free, easy to propagate (semi-ripe cuttings). What’s not to like?
