Thanks. It has arching shoots, so it 'does' look wonderful when it's in full bloom. :-)

Thank you Linda, that's a real compliment! :-))

Yes, Dd...I usually say that my Coronilla is my favourite shrub - until this opens its flowers! lol.

Now this is one I must get. To what size does it grow?
It's on favourites to remind me. I'm going to ive up looking at your ics (not really) as it costs me lots of money.

It's quite a large shrub, Toto - I can't reach the top of it, and its spread must be about 8 ft. I think you can prune them harder than I do, though.

Thanks Spritz. I'll look into the pruning situation before I finally commit myself.

I now know what this shrub is! Planted it many years ago in a shady position.It's only this month and year i've discovered its flowering.Will move it in the Autunm to a more suitable place.Can you tell me the care it needs please?

Ummm...well, mine is in shade for part of the day, as it faces east. I prune it after it's flowered, so I've just done that this week. Otherwise, I leave it to itself! ;-)
