Lynwood Gold Forsythia
Heavy Bloomer in Early Spring Brightens Any Yard
Once this Forsythia begins to show flowers, you know that spring has arrived. Forsythias are typically one of the first plants to bloom…and bloom they do!
Light lemon yellow flowers all along the stems make an incredible show that if the weather remains cool, can last for weeks. Weeks of color first thing out of the chute, how can you not include them in your landscape?
Massive yellow flower displays help the mask the symptoms of the cold short days of winter…so welcome to see. You can even cut branches off just as buds form and bring them inside your home in vases of water for an early show.
Easy to grow Forsythia are great larger scale shrubs used in mass, screening, or outstanding backdrops to a perennial or shrub border. Shiny dark green leaves all season long can offer some yellow and purplish fall color if fall comes on long and slow.
Forsythia plants hold their leaves late into the season. Few insect or disease problems make these old-fashioned plants as popular today as they were long ago. The plants sit so quietly all year long until spring makes these plants explode with color ushering in spring.
It is important to remember that the 4-petaled flowers are born on last year’s growth. The best time to do any pruning on all Forsythia is right after the flowers have faded.
Large and overgrown plants can be cut to the ground right after flowering, and the plants will respond with lots of new growth from the ground and still make flower buds for next year. Simple, and easy to grow plants are hardy from zones 5-8, and make large rounded shrubs about 8’ round.
For a spectacular splash of color that signals the arrival of spring, you can’t go wrong with the Lynwood Gold Forsythia. Order yours today!
