The Golden Guinea Kerria, Kerria japonica 'Golden Guinea', is also known as the Japanese Rose because it originated in China and Japan. It is also known as the Easter Rose because it blooms about Easter.

It is a tough, upright, rounded shrub with arching branches that will brighten up your sun or shade border. It matures to an impressive shrub width and height and is absolutely covered in gleaming blooms! After blooming, it can be trimmed to any size.

The 'Golden Guinea' has golden yellow, globe-shaped flowers that are borne from April through May. It is a twiggy, deciduous shrub with dark green, double-toothed, corrugated foliage that carries impressive character.

The interesting bright green stems stay green all winter long. It does not have any serious insect or disease problems making it worry free as well. If grown in sun, it does prefer protection from late afternoon sun, and will grow from full sun to full shade.
