I dunno what else it would be other than Kerria Japonica ‘Pleniflora’....

It got no serrated leafs, also Renate insisted it is not a Kerria when we discussed it, but I forgot what she called it. She said she got it from southern tyrolia, but that should be no indication that it is native there....

Hmmm.... Only other shrub I can think of with flowers that similar to Kerria would be the Lady Banks' Rose (Rosa Banksiae 'Lutea') -- but it wouldn't survive Germany's winters. There aren't too many shrubs that have this type of flower.

If the shrub was overwintered outdoors in GER, I don't think it can be anything other than Kerria Japonica ‘Pleniflora’. It's the only shrub with that type of flower than would be hardy in cold winter climes.

Whatever it's called, it certainly has pretty flowers =)

That proved not hardy. It is meanwhile and ex-shrub, bealted when we where up there after the ice saints again. This is why I am not sure if I should discuss it with her again. But it was exactly the day I took the pic when she replid to "Nice new Kerria!" something about the name I should have listened to better probaply, but we sat on the porch with about 8 people all talking at the same time about different things...
The name was short too but somehow reminiscent of a village where the "Easterbunny"that brought this back went I think. Schenna, Zenna ??? Anyway, hardy it proved not, what ever it was. :o(

Well, if not hardy, then it likely was a Lady Bank's Rose. They go by diff't regional common names.... It's a shame it didn't survive. If she wants to replace it, at least now you know to go with a Kerria instead ;)

That's the nice thing about having limited possibilities with a plant that bears nearly unique flowers =) And with this one, you really do only have two possibilities.

Naaa - I think a breed of some Caesalpinieae, probaply. Stop looking at the blossom only, this is no rose, it got legume leafs: in oblong feathers, but with no dents.
They buyer bought it probaply as a Senna if it was something about a location homophone. A filled form of a Buttercup Tree or suchlike seems to me not like something the world did wait for but it might well be an explaination what this poor plant had been. On the internet I can not find any evidence of filled Senna corymbosa, but they come always in yellow and the leafs would be a better match.
