Can anyone identify this shrub please? It has appeared in the garden and is throwing shoots up everywhere.




Kerria japonica

Might have come through from under the fence? Has pretty yellow flowers but is a thug.

that's certainly what it looks like - I bet next door's got it on the other side of the fence and that's where its coming from.

Not a Kerria. The picture shows opposite, compound leaves, while Kerria has alternate, simple leaves. It actually looks more like a Campsis vine than a shrub, to me.

I think you're right, Tugbrethil - I thought campsis when I first looked at it, but then went for Kerria.
