@gjones Thank you for asking. I planted this shrub two years ago, and last winter the rabbits chewed it to the ground, so my challenge has been to keep it alive! 😉

Advice needed: My Kerria shrub (photo from last year) was mowed to the ground over the winter by ravenous rabbits. Should I wait and see if it grows back? Or replace it with another shade-tolerant, flowering, understory shrub that can handle harsh winters? …. This corner of the garden is hemmed in by a garage and a large tree. The space is tight, and too shady for dwarf forsythia. … Suggestions welcome!

Here’s my new addition to a shaded corner where forsythia barely blooms. Kerria flowers resemble buttercups; the foliage looks like miniature birch leaves.

@gjones I mail-ordered mine from Nature Hills Nursery.
