I found the name of this lovely shrub today it is known as Japanese rose, Kerria, Jew's Mallow...Cultivar: 'Pleniflora' Species: Japonica.


  1. Good morning! Nice GBBD post. It must be wonderful having that beautiful Magnolia tree blooming in your yard. A blooming Forsythia bush is one of my favorite spring sights. Can't help you with the name of your yellow flowering shrub, but I bet someone will have an answer for you. Enjoy your day.


  2. What a fun post! Thx for telling us about GBBD, I'll have to check it out when I get home later.

    That magnolia tree is beautiful! I'd love to wake up and see all that pink,and I bet it smells nice too. The forsythia is also very pretty, love the nice yellow color.

  3. Good Morning and Thank you Donna and Bumble Lush for stopping by. Yes my magnolia is slightly scented..but not as strongly as the one's found in the south.

  4. Oh I love magnolia, Mamma G has a glorious white one I posted yesterday - your pink one is stunning. Nice GBBD post xxx

  5. Your magnolia is beautiful! We had a large one in our front yard at our former house, and I do miss it. This has been the perfect spring for magnolias, too, with such warm weather. It's been a great spring for forsythias as well. Thanks for sharing your lovely blooms on this Bloom Day!

  6. What a gorgeous tree! I have a tiny Magnolia that I think has some buds forming, hope it'll look as pretty as yours one day. Not sure what the last shrub is, but it's really pretty.

  7. Hello there,
    Wonderful tree to treat us to.
    The shrub looks like it might be the double form of Kerria: K. flora plena. Nice shrub. Grows easily and flowers for about three weeks. I love mine.

  8. Carrie, Rose, Catherine, joco, Thank you for stopping by my Garden bloom day post..So glad you all liked it!

  9. Hi Vetsy,
    That magnolia is beautiful! Thanks for teaching me something - I had no idea that magnolias grew any where but in the south.
    Enjoy your day.

  10. That looks like a Japanese magnolia to me. They bloom down here around February. Gorgeous! I've always wanted one.

    I don't know what the yellow flowers are either.

  11. Thank you...Japanese magnolia? hmm"... I'll have to do some research on it..Thanks.

  12. Hey Vetsy girl ! They are all pretty : ) but I too am wondering what that yellow flower is as well ? .. at least we didn't get any snow again .. so far .. fingers crossed ? LOL

  14. Thank you Joy... The weather here in Michigan has been totally insane! 80 degrees one day and 40 the next! I'm going to need Arthritis medication to uncross my crossed fingers once the weather finally makes up it's mind!
