I saw this beautiful flower shrub and have looked hard and not been able to ID or find a nursery which has it. I had seen this above mussoorie at about 7000ft. Hope the images are clear enough..

Just a wild guess, could it be Kerria japonica Pleniflora? I had something similar in the Chicago Botanic Gardens, USA. I may be wrong though!!

Yes, supporting … It is Kerria japonica (Rosaceae). Also common in Naini Tal.

Kerria japonica. It has yellow flowers. Why these are appearing orange? Was it clicked under low light conditions?

Thank you …, it is clicked under low light only.
