Forsythia - Fiesta
Fiesta Forsythia, Forsythia 'Fiesta' (PP7,523), is from New Zealand, and this plant really shines in the garden. The rich, green leaves with cream and gold centers light up the plant all season long.
Golden yellow flowers cover the shrub in spring. Fiesta is easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade, but best flower production happens in full sun.
It is an upright, mounded, deciduous shrub which typically grows 2-3' tall with a slightly larger spread. Fiesta is very tolerant of urban conditions.
You can group them in borders. Plant by foundations or mass them on banks or slopes. No serious insect or disease problems.
