"They are deciduous shrubs typically growing to a height of 1–3 m and, rarely, up to 6 m, with rough grey-brown bark. The leaves are opposite, usually simple but sometimes trifoliate with a basal pair of small leaflets, and range from 2–10 cm in length and, rarely, up to 15 cm long; the margin is serrated or entire. The flowers are produced in the early spring before the leaves, bright yellow with a deeply four-lobed flower, the petals joined only at the base. These become pendant in rainy weather thus shielding the reproductive parts." ~wiki
