Scientific Name :
Corylopsis pauciflora
Family :
Genus :

Many of the spring blooming flowering trees blossom their flowers before the leaves sprout, and this Corylopsis pauciflora is not an exception. How the flowers bloom is also something to note with Corylopsis pauciflora. You will notice that there are two to three yellow flower buds hanging from the branch and they resemble a drop earring.
Early spring flowering trees are rare and valued and many cultivars have been produced from long ago, but the original Copylopsis spicata is put under the Red List now as many are lost due to road side developments.
