    This thing has grown like a monster over the years. It turns like this in march and slowly starts turning green.

    I'm pretty sure the picture is of a Forthysia. I am probably spelling it wrong. Pronounced 4-thith-eeah. It blooms yellow flowers first in the spring followed by it's green leaves. I believe that you can 'force' the budded branches inside during the winter much like peach branches. It's a beautiful specimen you have in the picture!
