“Katherine Dykes” is a bushy deciduous shrub with an upright growth habit. It has small, dark-green pinnate leaves. Each leaf is approximately 4 cm in length. 

Flowers are saucer-shaped, and the petals are composed of a gentle canary-yellow colour. Each flower is approximately 2 to 3 cm in diameter.

Although it enjoys the shade, it can tolerate the sun. But, full sun will decrease the length of life for the individual flowers. The best combination for flowering includes partial sun with well-draining soils.

Remove dead or unwanted branches at the end of the season or at the onset of spring. This plant does well in most soil types, as long as the soil remains moist.  Although it is deciduous, it is full hardy and can withstand most temperatures in Europe.

As it is a more compact shrub, it grows well in flower beds and as accents in shrub borders or in some space of a city garden in a container or sheltered, but partially sunny location.
