This has been my experience too.  I have always been suspicious of 
this species because the clone I have - and the others I've seen - 
looks exactly like the yellow forms of Masd. Oriole (veitchiana x 
reichenbachiana).  They match in growth habit, culture and 
flowers.  Oriole also sometimes puts on a second flower.
