first thoughts are Grandiflora SGLily.  It looks very much like it to me 

yellow dogwood

maggie, is this the yellow leaved dogwood?

cut back evenly every year to a few centimetres from the base.  Cut out all weak growth.  There is no reason for your plant to lean unless its growing lushly and there is a strong prevailing wind.  

So, cut back hard in spring.  As growth develops use a couple of short bamboo canes to maintain upright habit.  Often over wet or rich soil conditions make for rapid lush spring growth that is vulnerable to strong winds so this is when you need to support.

My major flaw is doing things on impulse.  All logic, knowledge and sense goes out the window.  Sometimes its good sometimes bad.  Can't change now ....ha ha 

DD, expert? Me?  I just talk a lot
