Notes:

This is a small yellow flower that in blooming now. The leaves do not come until later. My Grandmother used to ‘force’ them to bloom around Christmas each year. This year the flower started in December and is still blooming. She always called them yellow bells. Is that the correct name for the flower?

    This is winter jasmine (Jasminum nudiflorum). It is a wonderful old plant with bright little yellow flowers in the winter (right now near Tuscaloosa, AL.). We have hd it here for generations.

    Buck & Bobby are absolutely correct… it is Jasminum nudiflorum or Winter Jasmine. I’m a horticultural student at Gwinnett Technical College and we have this on campus. Masses of bright yellow flowers on leafless green shoots when almost nothing else is blooming. Very nice plant indeed.

    Thank you for giving me the correct name for Winter Jasmine. I have it now and remember it from my childhood at my Grandmother’s home.
