Pom-poms to the Right

6x8" oil on masonite
Kerria Japonica,plentiflora
around here, this time of year the Azaleas hog the spotlight. This shrub is overlooked, I'm learning to really appreciate it. I love the double flowers that grow on arching airy branches. It is not picky about its soil and will bloom in FULL shade. -talk about a shot of color for a dark spot in your yard. You can also cut it to the ground after it blooms and it will come back next year....oops off topic...plant this plant, its really fun to paint.
